Customer Review

on 3 July 2008
UNCUT magazine called this a forgotten classic and awarded it 5 stars. I bought the dvd and in this writers opinion this 1975 movie is a so-so effort from Peckinpah which deals with a CIA agent (Caan) doublecrossed by his turncoat former partner (Duvall). The espionage theme is an interesting change of pace, but the film has a detached feeling and lacks the personal touch of Peckinpah's better work. The action scenes are well executed, however i was confused after the first 30 minutes of the movie when kung-fu fighters appear from nowhere and attack each other in an airport. There are more silly plot developments, and there is also silly comedy which seems out of place. This is not a decent action film; it is sub-par for Peckinpah.
