The West German security police, Verfassungsschutz, need help to infiltrate a group connected to the Rote Arme Fraktion. The Swedish James Bond, Carl Hamilton, goes to Hamburg, pretending to be a Swedish officer, thrown out of the country after having been exposed as an East German spy. He gets in contact with the terrorists and joins them. Together they are planning to strike against the CIA headquarters in Stockholm Written by
This movie is okay entertainment, but I think Peter Haber is much better in the role as Hamilton than Stellan Skarsgård. Haber can be seen in the TV mini-series, "Enemy's Enemy" for instance. Peter Stormare might also be a better Hamilton (see Harald Zwart's "Hamilton"). I gave this movie 6/10, OK entertainment, but nothing more. Watch one of the other Hamilton films (if you already have, you'll probably like this one about as well as I did), or even better: Read one of the books! ;)
