Goofs

About two-thirds into the film, an unconscious man is discovered lying fully clothed on a bed. The first shot of the man shows only his left hand, palm down, near the left side of the bed. This implies that he is lying on his back. But moments later, in a wider shot, the man is shown lying face down. See more »

Disappointing Hopkins effort
31 January 2000 | by (Denver Colorado) – See all my reviews

Is it a spy story? Is it a murder thriller? Is it a love story? This movie tries to be all three and ends up being a mess.

Anthony Hopkins effort as an American security officer is uneven and almost lacking in emotion. His strong American nasal accent which reminds me of his role in the "Road to Wellville" fades as the movie goes on and almost lapses to his native English.

On the other hand Campbell Scott, an American, does an outstanding job of playing an English scientist to the limits of the convoluted script. One can't help wondering if an important 30 minutes of story was left on the cutting room floor.

Probably the only scene of interest is in the final 10 minutes of the picture and it occurs at an airport in Berlin. The common views and elements of the scene as compared to the airport scene in "Casablanca" are probably intentional as Isabella Rossellini is the daughter of Ingrid Bergman.

My suggestion is to watch "Casablanca" first then the final 10 minutes of this movie as that is about all anyone will want to remember of "The Innocent".
