The twists and quips keep coming, with Marvin’s hilariously memorable final line. DCP. Approx. 117 min.
“Taut and disillusioned… Richard Brooks could certainly write a line and direct action.”
– Paul Taylor, Time Out
“A well-made actioner… exciting explosive sequences, good overall pacing and acting.”
