Trivia

In a pub scene when Marwan leaves a meeting with Danny ("Alex"), a writing can be seen "Beware of little expenses, a small leak will sink a great ship". See more »

Goofs

When the Israeli airliner is attacked, the weapons shown are clearly rocket propelled grenades which would be an inappropriate weapon for an attack on an airborne plane. It is likely that the story meant to show the use of stinger missiles. See more »

Great story, well told...ignore the bad reviews with an agenda!
16 September 2018 | by pellenbogenSee all my reviews

This is really an excellent film with none of the gratuitous violence that is typical of too many espionage thrillers. This is a true, old fashion 1970s spy story during an extraordinary period of history. I was totally unaware of this story before I saw this film. It's well acted and not over produced, and unless your an Arabic speaker it doesn't matter how authentic the idioms are.
