Storyline

Joseph Rearden takes the fall for a robbery and winds up in the Scrubs. From there he escapes in the company of a convicted spy and is taken to a remote manor at an unknown location where he is kept isolated. He overpowers his guard and flees, but nothing is quite what it seems in this drama of intrigue as Rearden pursues his quarry from Ireland to Malta. Written by Martin H. Booda <booda@datasync.com>

Goofs

There is a scene with Paul Newman swimming in a harbor in Malta. They obviously had no shot with him going back toward the yacht he had just escaped as they needed, so they ran a segment of film backwards. (His movement and wake left in the water are dead giveaways.) See more »

Not a majority opinion
24 August 2000 | by See all my reviews

I suppose compared to what passes for entertainment today, a"thriller" would require substantial buckets of gore, gratutious sex, and a sound level that rivals your average city airport. This movie does require you to pay attention and use your brain for a while. I found it held my attention right to the climax. And I don't agree with the Maltin summary at all. I havn't seen this before. This is not a boring movie.
