Average thriller
21 September 2005 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The movie is worth seeing because it stars Alain Delon (a psychologist who collaborates with police) and Jean Yanne, a psychopathic criminal with terrorist aspirations.

Maybe the film is more interesting today than in 1977, because now we live in a period in which terrorist threat is global. In a certain way "Armaguedon" is 25 years ahead of its time.

Unfortunately, although still watchable, the movie lacks a real confrontation between the two main actors, and that's a pity -because thriller is one of the genres French filmmakers are excellent in. In the film Delon and Yanne never meet really... It's a script mistake, which director Alain Jessua admits.

There's some action, but the film is more psychological than physical -it's not like many banal Hollywood action movies. But it's not a memorable movie, the final part goes too fast -it spoils the tension settled so far.
