There are a lot of twists and turns in this film, but it isn't about the plot as much as it is about the cat-and-mouse games between the two fantastic leads. Strong performances bring to life the sharp dialogue and witty humor.

When I first saw this movie, shortly after its release, I thought it was the best movie I'd ever seen. For several years, I named it among my favorites. Then the gimmick wore off. I don't think I've seen it again in twenty-five years. Laurence Olivier and Michael Caine are both excellent, though, and you can tell when you watch them that they're having a ball with it. Maybe I should give it another look...

Brilliant performances by the lead characters really elevate this overly long and sometimes flawed film. The clown scene still stands out as awkward when the film switches clumsily to a slapstick comedy. After meandering a bit in the beginning, things shift into high gear and the story doesn't disappoint. Although the twists are mostly telegraphed, since the movie doesn't rely on them it doesn't take away the enjoyment.

Why oh why would they think to remake this? If it isn't broke, don't try to fix it.

The concept of this movie is perfect. It reminded me a lot of "The Game." It does slow down at times because the script hiccups one too many times. The performances are brilliant though.
