“I saw this movie and unfortunately was very disappointed. After reading the brilliant book written by Martin Cruz Smith I expected a brilliant screenplay in movie form. I was wrong, many characters are missing which are vital to the story line and Hurtu0026#39;s performance of the title character is not believable, his accent isnu0026#39;t even right! Not that I donu0026#39;t think Hurt is a talented actor, I just didnu0026#39;t feel he was the right person for the part. The only thing that made the movie bearable for me was the the perfect casting choice of Lee Marvin as the American. It was as though this part was written for him and no one else. If you want to see the movie, read the book first (its will explain the holes in the plot for you) and enjoy one of Lee Marvinu0026#39;s last great performances!”
