ldh's review

When Belmondo tried to channel his inner Dirty Harry, this film along with The Outsider, were the results. Good performances, good cast of classic French character actors, solid writing and direction and a few good action sequences. Maybe it's nostalgia talking here, but i saw these when they came out in the early 80's and much enjoyed watching them again some 36y later. The score by Ennio Morricone is a classic and help drive the tension all the way to the incredible finale. A cut above the rest story wise, it's a good spy gone rogue sprinkled with government intrigue setup.
