Based on 7 Critics
  • Possibly the most under-plotted, underwritten, over-photographed film of the year. Which is not to say it isn't great to look at. It is. show more

  • It is a flashy, undemanding technical achievement, enhanced by the marquee power of Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway. show more

  • Slick, silly romantic thriller, with Dunaway as an insurance investigator falling for McQueen, the property developer led to commit a bank robbery through boredom. Much obvious 'significance' (the pair playing chess; symbolic, see?), much glossy imagery (courtesy of Haskell Wexler) fashionably fragmented into interminable split-screen nonsense, and little of any real interest. show more
