"The Black Windmill" had the potential to be an entertaining Spy thriller like "The Ipcress File."
Alas, this wasn't the case in my opinion.
The plot is very boring,there isn't much excitement or incident,Michael Caine sleeps his way through his performance (doesn't he always?), Don Siegel's direction is lacking in inspiration and the talented supporting cast are going to waste. The film finally warms up a bit for the last 20 minutes but it's too little too late.
