Michael Caine said of this movie in a 2002 interview with Venice magazine: "That was a lovely little film, but it was too small for its own good, really. It got lost.

Never has such a Machiavellian killer seemed so appealing.
Michael Caine keeps piling up the bodies, but you always seem to be on his side. There's no heart-pounding action, just an intense game of criminal chess where Caine stays one step ahead of the competition.
This is a seriously satisfying flick for anyone who's ever wanted to take out some of your co-workers.
