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 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

Shortly thereafter, members of a covert US government group called "The Division" begin to be murdered one by one.

""Later that night, Babe (Dustin Hoffman) is abducted from his apartment by the two men who mugged him in the park and brought to Szell (Laurence Olivier). Szell tortures him using a dental probe on a cavity in his tooth and repeatedly asking "Is it safe?" (to retrieve his diamonds). Babe truthfully denies any knowledge, but Szell tortures Babe relentlessly regardless of his answers. Babe is rescued by Janeway (William Devane), who explains that Szell is in America to recover the large cache of d"

My movie year 2016 (666 movies items)

"8.3. (DVD/Kirjasto) Dustin Hoffman syöttää natsille timantteja. Alussa jännite toimii (kuin myös hieman öisen paon yhteydessä), mutta muuten en jaksanut innostua näistä omaan nokkeluuteensa ("Onko se turvallista?") kompastuvista juoniumppareista ja epäuskottavuudesta, joka näyttäytyy pahimmillaan lopussa Hoffmanin ihmepelastumisen hetkellä: Ei se mitään, että jäbän kintereillä on joku megaluokan salaliittoporukka, tämä tietää ihan vitusti liikaa ja jättää jälkeensä k"
