3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 10 2010
Format: DVD
The year is 1944, and a German spy (code-name: "the Needle") has photos that could damage the Allies' plans for D-Day. While trying to get the photos to a U-boat, he is shipwrecked on a remote island off the coast of Scotland, which is home to a disabled man, his lonely wife, and their child.

This movie is very intense and scary, thanks to Donald Sutherland who plays the Needle, a cold and calculating killer who racks up quite a body count. He's convincing even though his British accent isn't. Kate Nelligan costars as the needy wife who rescues him and quickly falls for him. Her British accent is quite good and she is excellent in the part.

The rain-soaked island with waves crashing on its cliffs is picturesque at times and also very claustrophobic and creepy at the end. Miklos Rosza's ("Ben-Hur") chilling score adds to the excitement. The last half hour had me on the edge of my seat. Recommended for those who like WWII thrillers. With violence and nudity.

Format: DVD
Early 1980's hit has apparently disappeared. Sutherland plays a World war 2 German spy who comes upon the landing plans for D-Day, As "the eye", all he need do is to be picked up by a German u- boat. Sutherland speaks perfect English and German, and has left a bloody trail around Britain for 4 plus years.Now, he's at it again, commiting 2 more murders, repeatedly seducing a vulnerable woman, all in the name of relaying war instructions from Storm Island to Germany.The finale is unforgettable, a stark movie ending in a fitting fashion. Well cast backup players, most unknown in the USA, play their roles expertly, and Sutherland is Sutherland, the viewer either appreciates his work or doesn't. The background musis, when used at all, is apt, and the photography is vintage British Isles. Pick up a copy for entertainment and/or a good collector's item.

Format: DVD
for a WW2 story from 1981,this one is pretty good.it does move slow at
times though.it is also pretty low key for this kind of film.this movie
is much more character driven and relies on its two main players to
really carry the film,and that they do.Donald Sutherland plays a German
spy with ice in his veins who has no problem with murder when it suits
his needs.so really he is also an assassin of sorts.he's sort of a
Carlos the Jackal type character who may have been a real assassin who
was a chameleon and who eluded authorities and was never captured or
possibly even seen.anyway back to the movie.Kate Nelligan plays the
love interest(and more than that) and does well in the role.Christopher
Cazenov plays David,Lucy's(Kate Nelligan) husband in a very strong
supporting performance. the movie has its share of suspense and
action,but again it's low key i found the writing quite good.it's based
on a novel by Ken Follett.one thing that stood out in this movie is its
subtlety.there's no over the top rah rah rah attitude that's evident in
many later movies.but then this is a German/English production and not
an American made movie.the point is,it's refreshing to see a well
written story with well written characters that doesn't bombard your
senses with sentimentality and inspirational pap.i liked this movie
quite a bit.i give "Eye of the Needle" a 3.5/5

For any lovers of World War II history this is a wonderful older film. Donald Sunderland and Kate Nelligan are excellent in it, the story keeps you in its grip so curl up at home with popcorn and ENJOY! I highly recommend it!

I didn't realize that this DVD cannot be played in Canada, only in Europe! It should be stated explicitly right on the top that it is only for Region 2.

Great entertainment, however, odd that Donald Sutherlands hat remains glued to his head all through the movie despite rain and wind

It proves that when you are in the deprived of tenderness sometimes we do things that we regret afterwards. but I think that he did love her and he did let her kill him.

Donald Sutherland has tended to be one of our finest actors, overlooked and dismissed by many critics. Sure, he's done some floppers (e.g. Virus), but in this movie he shows why he's such a riveting performer. He plays the Needle, a cold, psychotic killer, who is a German spy and holds the key to knowledge of the D-Day invasion. He ends up shipwrecked on a lonely island, inhabited only by a reclusive cripple and his devoted, if lonely, wife. Kate Nelligan (so good in "Dracula" with Frank Langella) is perfect as Lucy, the woman whose need for love leads to an affair with the Needle. Christopher Cazenove turns in a good performance as her husband, whose bitterness over his auto accident, has turned him into an uncaring, selfish man. Director Richard Marquand keeps the movie moving at a leisurely pace, but packs some powerful suspense scenes; the score by Miklos Roza is admirable, and the scenery is lush and beautiful. I havent' read Ken Follett's novel, but this is a great movie and hopefully did it justice.
