Is it safe?

Columbia University graduate student Babe Levy (Dustin Hoffman) spends his spare time running in marathons, but soon finds himself running for his life when he unwittingly becomes entangled in an espionage plot involving fierce Nazi fugitive Szell (Sir Laurence Olivier).

This has got to be the tightest plotted thriller I've ever had the pleasure to witness. Watch for or avoid (it m... read more

To be honest , it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should give it a second chance. Indeed, since this movie had a really solid reputation, I had some rather high expectations but, eventually, I thought it was actually rather underwhelming. I mean, sure, it is a well made thriller with some great actors (Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier) at the top of their game and, yet... read more

Marathon Man

Marathon Man is an awkward marriage between political/espionage thriller and Nazis-on-the-loose chiller. There are moments of sublime horror and some great acting on display, but the film is ultimately undone by its instance on being more important or better than it actually is. There are large swaths of time in which the film is a bore, and more than a few moments in which the story’s various t... read more

"First viewing - Dec. 27th Eh, this was OK. The acting is mostly good, and the story is kinda interesting except that it winds up being nothing really special. And it didn't help that I failed to connect with a single character as none of them did anything to endear themselves to me. Honestly there were times when I questioned why I was watching it instead of something else, but then something exciting would happen & I'd hang on longer. But ultimately I was left with a feeling of "yep, I've watc"

“To be honest , it has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should give it a second chance.

I mean, sure, it is a well made thriller with some great actors (Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier) at the top of their game and, yet, I didn’t really connect with this flick. The main problem I had is that, in my opinion, it was just another far-fetched thriller with a rather ridiculous premise. I don’t know, to me, it seemed to be one of these movies with some much more interesting behind-the-production details than the actual movie itself. For example, it is quite fascinating that Laurence Olivier was actually struggling” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: April (35 movies items)

"April 17 "Is it safe?" This was a really great spy thriller and possibly one of the best of it's kind. This is the kind of movie that will suck you in from the beginning and it doesn't slow down until it ends. It's got so many great scenes and it's one of Dustin Hoffman's finest moments. This is another classic movie from the 70's and it's just overall a fantastic movie."
