Quotes

Lucas Martino: You think panic has something to do with the heart racing, the nerves getting tense, the breath getting labored? Mine doesn't. But I'm in a constant state of panic, Mr. Rogers. My mind is poised for flight. I'm on the edge of screaming all the time, except that if I did more people would stare at me and that would make me scream more until I wouldn't be able to stop!

Interesting concept poorly realized.

American scientist is in an accident and East Germans save him. He comes back to America with his head in a metal casing and American agents don't know if it's really the same guy or a spy.

Very low budget. Elliot Gould stars in this vehicle as the US agent who doesn't think the guy is the real deal.

I suspect this movie was the beginning of Gould's demise as an actor. It come after all his great movies and he hasn't done much of substance since.

He walks through this role reading lines in a stiff fashion. Interestingly this movie was made nearly 15 years before the original RoboCop. Wonder if they got the idea from it. It's basically the same concept without the law enforcement angle.

The giant fatal flaw in this film is if they really wonder if this is the real scientist, why don't they just take his fingerprints and compare them?

Plus, flashbacks make it apparent it IS the guy. So all the suspense is lifted n the first 10 minutes.

There's no drama no tension. Just a guy with a silver head wandering around.

Super disappointment.
