      Roger Moore Movie Nation Harvey's version of a downward spiral is fun to watch, Remick was at her most beguiling as a woman trapped between two men and a literal rock and a hard place, Bates is believably smitten and Reed keeps it all on the move Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 27, 2023 Full Review Clyde Gilmour Maclean's Magazine ...the whole thing never quite works up an atmosphere of suspense. Oct 7, 2019 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The acting was stiff. Rated: C Dec 17, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      nick s Good adventure/thriller, with a competent cast and crew. Some colourful locations, good sets, and stunts. I found the drama quite entertaining. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Really entertaining! Lee Remick is so beautiful!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/13/22 Full Review Audience Member A well paced exciting thriller that builds nicely with great interactions between the 3 leads. A well written story and nicely executed and directed. I've watched it several times and it still delivers. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed the movie! the tv has it rated 3 stars. i gave it another half a star. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Good drama with a bit of mystery thrown in. It hard to say what's more beautiful in this movie the locations, which are breathtaking or Lee Remick and Alan Bates both at the peak of their individual attractiveness who are equally stunning. They offer the best performances doing an uncertain dance around each other never sure of the others motives. Laurence Harvey is his usual squirrely pompous self but that fits the role. Well known to be an abrasive, selfish, uncooperative and egotistical jerk behind the scenes Harvey apparently was incredibly difficult on this shoot to the point where Lee Remick refused to discuss the problems but was quoted as saying "The tales I can tell of working with him are too horrendous to repeat." Not a classic Reed film but he guides the film well although apparently his confidence had been shaken by exiting another troubled production the Marlon Brando Mutiny on the Bounty just prior to this. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Well played. High quality plot. Great scenery. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
