Robert Hayes: [Points at Christopher] What's he doin' here?
Johann Hurtil: Do you know each other?
David Christopher: [Speaks softly to Hurtil] Yeah, well, not socially.
Robert Hayes: Answer me!
Johann Hurtil: The bank has retained Mr. Christopher to protect its clients, Mr. Hayes.

This is a bad movie, sorry to say.
15 September 2000 | by pheidiasSee all my reviews

As a devotee of movies about intrigues, conspiracies and white-collar crimes that turn ugly, I was predisposed to like any story set in the glamorous-but-devious world of Swiss banking. And I like John Saxon.

But with very bad sound, clumsy credits, actors not interacting, corny music, a confusing plot (though I guessed the bad guy right away), a subplot more about middle-aged lust than romance, literal-minded camera work and a script so full of cliches there was no room for anything original, I had to give it a 3.

If you like skiing see "On Her Majesty's Secret Service". If you like bank fraud see "Shawshank Redemption". If you like conspiracies, see "Parallax View". If you like untrustworthy older people having sex, see the remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair". And if you want to see all of these in one movie, this is not the one.

I think the makers of this film were trying to make some sort of cross between the plot of a Bond movie and the style of "The French Connection". If you like car chases, you should see it.

"The French Connection", I mean.
