A very good, taut, ...By Elisabeth#1 from WORTHING , 20 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]A very good, taut, credible thriller, with Caine and Brosnan both on fine form. If there is a flaw, it's the absence of a big confrontation scene between the two. The whole movie seems to be leading us to that, and then it's resolved in a couple of seconds. But don't let that put you off watching. Caine is masterly as ever, and Brosnan in this early role pulls off the difficult feat of giving depth and sympathy to a cold-blooded killer -- so that we're rooting for the villain as much as for the hero. Makes for a most interesting movie.

ExcellentBy rikerish (61 reviews) from Corsham, Engalnd , 01 Jul 2008This is what the British Film Industry does best......taut thrillers, with believable, well acted stories. The acting by all was fab, not only by Caine and a young Brosnan, but by the rest of the cast to. It has so many.....'oh thats thingy, he was in so & so' actors, it will bring back great memories of other great films you've enjoyed.
Some might think the film is a bit dated, but if you think about it, it could still happen. The story zipps along at such a nice pace, before you realize it, it's an hour later. Probably one, just for the blokes, but have an idea the wives would like it to. Part of me would like to see it re-made, using the same style as ' next ' and ' De-Ja-Vu '..... Don't wait till the next time it's on telly........rent or buy it now.
Excellent Cold War ThrillerBy Burnsey7 (3 reviews) from Gloucester , 17 Mar 2008Michael Caine cuts through the politicking and power plays amongst the so called elite to give an edge of your seat race against time to save a major international disaster.
Pearce Brosnan plays a convincing young russian agent/assassin.
Frighteningly plausible scenario.....other old hands supply the substance.
Although the hardware/software starting to look well dated.
