Movie Review by Movie Addict
December 5th, 2010

Favorite Movie Quote: "Is it safe?... Is it safe?"

Laurence Olivier received an Oscar nomination for Best Motion Picture Actor in a Supporting Role. BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations were also handed out for John Schlesinger's direction, Dustin Hoffman and Marthe Keller's acting, and William Goldman's script.

This is the way thrillers used to be made, and producers today should pay attention.

It slowly draws you in. You really don't know how things connect at first. You don't know who to trust. You really don't know what they are after.

When it does get going, the action is fast and furious. The holes are filled in, and we know that the challenge will be to survive.

Great acting, great direction and a great script.
