Trivia

Last movie to use the location of the Spandau prison in West Berlin. The Spandau prison was operated after World War II by the Four-Power Authorities to house the Nazi war criminals sentenced to imprisonment at the Nuremberg Trials. It was completely demolished after the last prisoner, Rudolf Hess (played by Sir Laurence Olivier) died in 1987, to prevent it from becoming a neo-Nazi shrine. See more »

Not Bad...
1 April 2003 | by goldfinger2a-2See all my reviews

I have just seen this film, and l thought it was quite good, not up to the original but the story line was good, the acting was good, in fact it was a good film with a fantastic idea.

Olivier and Fox add to the cast with Olivier doing his best to convey a hard part...

I have read in books that this film was a "bomb" and a lot of folk don`t like it, but why has every film got to have a message, why can't people just see a film for what is should be a bit of fun, l give this film

8/10
