Interesting, but ultimately disappointing effort from director Mike Nichols and screenwriter Buck Henry. The concept is intriguing, the performances are strong, and there's some great smart dialogue, but it's just too slow - there are many scenes that just drag on and on with long shots and it fails to generate any suspense.
ilm d'aventures pimenté d'espionnage manquant de punch et de dynamisme, malgré un scénario hautement plausible dans l'utilisation de ses sympathiques mammifères aquatiques à des fins destructeurs. Somme toute une déception concernant Mike Nichols, plus à l'aise dans les "plongées" psychologiques... www.cinefiches.com
