Goofs

As Frazer is being taken to Madrid, their Rolls Royce is forced off the road by the "smugglers". When the driver of the Rolls climbs from the wrecked car he draws his gun, but one of the criminals throws a knife & kills him. Instead of a fake knife throw, the actor actually throws the knife, but he throws high over the driver's head. The driver reacts out of fear by ducking his head forward. Then as the scene cuts, the knife is in the driver's chest & his head is leaning back. See more »

A spy thriller
18 June 2001 | by lora64See all my reviews

Lots of intrigue in this plot about kidnapping a ruling dignitary in the Near East. My main reason for watching is to see Jack Hawkins whom I always admired. There's some violence of course, and a shootout, but it's to be expected in this kind of movie. A good show.
