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

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

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 twists and turns strain credibility to the breaking point.

It tells the story of a man, Dustin Hoffman in sweaty and twitchy mode, stumbling into a conspiracy involving the US government, Nazis in America, gems, and his dead brother (Roy Scheider, who is magnetic and not in this long enough). The film gets fairly preposterous towards the middle and end as everyone Hoffman keeps meeting is” read more

"Movie Marathon Sometimes you get in that mood (at least I do) when you just want to sit the whole day and watch films. Sometimes friends have the same mood. Other times you want to just sit for yourself. "

" “Why not try acting? It’s a lot easier,” said Laurence Olivier to Dustin Hoffman, who trained for Marathon Man by running four miles a day. Hoffman even reportedly ran half a mile prior to scenes that required him to be panting…"

Too Young For Heart Attacks: Don't show your kids (13 movies items)

"Marathon Man is a pretty good story with some great actors. Roy Scheider, Dustin Hoffman, and the great Laurence Olivier. Yeah, kids don't care about that stuff. Neither did I, when I was all but six and watching stabbing, torture, more torture, and shootings. "
