Product Description

Amazon.ca

Robert Redford and Sydney Pollack continued their longtime collaboration (the actor and director have worked together on Jeremiah Johnson, The Way We Were, The Electric Horseman, and Out of Africa, among other films) with this taut spy drama. Redford plays a reader for U.S. intelligence who becomes a hunted man after he is not among the victims of a mass murder of his colleagues. Faye Dunaway does solid work as the frightened and mystified woman whom he forces to conceal him, and Max von Sydow is appropriately cool as a professional assassin. That same, sustained tone of danger and expectation that made Pollack's The Firm so much fun can be found in this 1975 thriller, albeit with an appropriate dose of post-Watergate paranoia. --Tom Keogh

4.0 out of 5 stars Tense, suspenseful Nixon era thriller. July 20 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This has all the elements of all the great films from the late 60's & early 70's including, most importantly, an unresolved ending ...which works. Something that only the boldest filmmaker/producer and studio would even dare think about let alone actually do in this day and age.
The pace is great...until we get to the obligatory love scene. I get the whole ...we have to include a love scene for all the female members of the audience...thing ....but the film grids to an embarrassing halt when this scene rears its ugly head. Pun intended. Yes I even get if you were a female and a handsome guy like Redford kidnaps you at gun point with some crazy conspiracy theory ( especially when conspiracy theories were NOT in vogue and those who were, were either wacko's left over from the McCarthy era or anti-establishment/hippy types)... the first thing you want to do is after the guy enters your life in a violent fashion you then allow him to enter your body. The politics of making money won over back then (as now) but now we have to live with this scene forever stuck in the middle of this really nice spy thriller. What are you gonna do...? If it serves the story, great, but if it serves ONLY the box office.... ARRRGGGGGGG!
Some nice acting turns by Dunaway and Robertson. Great photography and locations.
Nice clean transfer. Pretty lame "Love scene" basic menu artwork.
Absolutely NO extras other than the trailer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Redford At His Best Here... Nov. 3 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
"A well made Thriller by Sydney Pollack"back in the seventy's with
Robert Redford as C.I.A. agent Joe Turner,who reads everything,Books
newspapers for the CIA looking for codes from other country's,or on there
own turf,so when they kill his hole team he try to figure out who and why
they were killed,he's teamed up here with Fay Dunaway gorgeous as ever,and
my Favorite actor of all time Max Von Sydow this guy is so Cool,and Cliff Robertson,
[Charlie] you have got to see that movie,seeing that this movie is about thirty or
more years old they have done a very good job with this Blu-Ray you can tell
someone really took the time with it,whenever you pause the movie there is a Bar
that comes up to tell you the length of the movie,and it stays there now that's a good
blu-ray for an old movie,even the picture Quality is Good.
Runtime 117 Minutes.
Dolby True H-D.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent souvenir. July 12 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Dans mon souvenir, je donnais 5 étoiles à ce film. Le temps a passé. Allons-y pour 4. L'histoire est bonne, le rythme aussi A l'époque on prenait son temps pour raconter sans être endormant. Les acteurs sont excellents. On découvrait que la CIA était partout même dans de soi-disant études littéraires. Aujourd'hui, on sait qu'elle est dans notre ordi ou notre téléphone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Redford movie ever Sept. 29 2013
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great spy/ man in foreign circumstances type of movie. Faye Dunaway is strikingly gorgeous in this, and Redford is the reluctant spy. Great story based on a book called, I think, 6 days of The Condor. A must see movie

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Redford offering July 19 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I enjoy Robert Redford.... I wish they would put more of his movies into Blu ray (like Brubaker)Also make sure they are close captioned or subtitled for a few of us old fools that have their hearing damaged in the Military... I enjoyed this movie immensely...Lots of action and some mental exercise at the end of the picture...Like many of Redford's pictures. Much like the Spy Game... Thanks Amazon... great offering!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie is very intelligent June 26 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I liked the plot and the technical twists and turns of this thriller. Robert Redford plays a cia employee who reads books to find possible codes. He finds patterns and trys to break them or alert the Cia to there existence. He comes across something that causes his whole office or team to be wiped out leaving him as the only survivor, because he was out to lunch. How he goes about trying to survive is very intelligent and entertaining. There is a dry romance between he and Dunaway. He is on the run and time is not on hand so there scenes are quick and to the point. I liked the dialogue it was also dry and to the point. It sometimes took a few minutes for it to sink in. A highly intelligent film with good entertainment value. Worth watching.
