A pretty good spy movie
25 April 1999 | by (Lubbock, TX) – See all my reviews

This one came in kind of late in that period of all the 007-imitation movies. Some of them were terrible, like "Operation Kid Brother" (which starred Sean Connery's brother Neil!). And some were pretty good, like "Innocent Bystanders". It is well-directed and its cinematography is excellent. Its rapid editing is really neat at first, but it gets kind of annoying after a while. Baker is excellent as a cold-blooded agent who has been double-crossed by his own people. I was amused by the constant bickering of Baker's two rival agents. "Innocent Bystanders" also has a couple alumni from the 007 movies: Donald Pleasence from "You Only Live Twice" (the original Dr. Evil!) and Vladek Sheybal from "From Russia With Love". If you in the mood for a dark spy adventure, "Innocent Bystanders" is for you.
