Steven Soderbergh, director of Che: Part One (2008) and Che: Part Two (2008), in an interview with Alex Simon, said of this film: "That's a fascinating movie. Flawed, but really the things that people disliked about it when it came out are what makes it interesting now, it's refusal to sort of play to the idea of a war-torn romance. An absolute refusal to be sentimental or easy about anything. Brooke Adams' character was really fascinating. Here's a woman who says 'Look, I don't know what little fantasy you've got in your head, but don't play it out on me, because I'm not that.' And this guy (Sean Connery) who's wrestling with the fact that the kind of guy he is, is obsolete now...It's a really interesting movie." See more »

This film is laughably bad. In the scene in the restaurant Sean Connery and Brooke Adams are clearly at a loss for words. This scene is obviously unscripted and they are making up the dialog and not doing very well either! The entire picture falls apart in the last fifteen minutes with silly and uncoordinated action being filmed just to fill up the running time. I am sure that the actors (and this picture has a good cast) would like to forget that this flick was in their filmography. The dialog is silly, the action is senseless, the relationships unbelievable. The director has a lot to answer for. A waste of good film.
