Doubtless, like most Preminger, it'll improve with age.

Top Critic

A suspense melodrama of such ineptitude, lethargy and loose ends that only someone with his arm being twisted would take credit for it.

May 9, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Rosebud makes even Exodus look like Gone With The Wind.

December 3, 2019 | Full Review…

The troubles in the Middle East have never been so yawnable.

October 23, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Muddled, overlong and a not very suspenseful political thriller.

August 3, 2007 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

While the plot meanders at times, and the film's politics are confused, the reliable performances and Preminger's steady pacing make for a generally involving movie.
