Trivia

Although this film is sometimes referred to as "Len Deighton's Midnight in Saint Petersburg," Len Deighton himself had no involvement in the production and the film is not based on one of his novels. Not only that, but Deighton did not even coin the name "Harry Palmer" (the character in his novels remained unnamed). See more »

A cure for insomnia ?
24 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Every time I woke up during this film there seemed to be Caine jumping in a car and rushing off somewhere.If it was trying to capture the magic of the first three Palmer films then it failed miserably,not just because they were the product of a different time and atmosphere, but because its a muddle to a point I really didn't have a clue what was going on, just a lot of cars buzzing about,old factories and the usual rat-tat-tat dialogue. While Caine was hungry for the fame in the first Palmer pictures and acted accordingly, he is not hungry anymore here and is obviously just Michael Caine acting as Michael Caine, but its not all his fault as he has no foil here to bounce off due to the dull co-stars.
