Goofs

When "Nick Allen" (Billy Dee Williams) waits outside for "Esther" (Janear Hines) to leave her place of work, she has on a dark colored blouse and her hair is draped around her neck to her shoulders. Then from an in-car shot when Esther is shown driving (checking her left rear-view mirror, seeing she's being followed by Nick), her clothes and hairstyle have changed: she is now wearing a white colored blouse and her hair is in a pony tail.

She pulls over for Nick, he gets out of his car, walks to the driver side of her car and her clothes and hairstyle have changed back to her wearing a dark colored blouse and her hair draped around her neck to her shoulders. See more »

Quotes

Esther: You know the government pays me $18,000 to be a computer programmer. I'd trade every single cent... just for one night with you.
Nick Allen: I can't stay with you. I can't.

Very well done!
8 January 2012 | by juliaareaSee all my reviews

First viewing of this 70s movie: I was impressed with the depth of the characterizations. One feels in tune with each of the group's well defined personalities, in examining their weaknesses, strengths and limitations. It was if you knew the individual personally, what made them tick. As you grow with them, you believe as do they, that ordinary people can accomplish what they purpose. This diverse group of people brought shading and depth to the plot, drawing you into the events as they played out in an international setting. Tension and suspense is palpable with every individual character's actions. You feel the adrenaline and excitement as the plot builds to multiple crescendoes. Yes, plural! Timing becomes critical. A touch black hero-ish, a bit dated (hence a 9 rather than a 10)but so very well acted and clever that it holds one's attention throughout. Yes, it would benefit from a better format.
