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

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, I'm glad I gave it a 2nd chance because I was much more able to enjoy it this time around. Indeed, it is basically one of these typical paranoïd thriller from the 70's with some really solid directing and a perfect cast. Above all, I really enjoyed the first half during which there was a... 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. When the brother to one Division member sees his brother knifed to death, it is revealed that former SS dentist Szell, "the White Angel" of Auschwitz, is wrapping up loose ends to smuggle priceless diamonds from the United States.

" "Oh, please don't worry. I'm not going into that cavity. That nerve's already dying. A live, freshly-cut nerve is infinitely more sensitive. So I'll just drill into a healthy tooth until I reach the pulp. Unless, of course, you can tell me that it's safe."

"5.7. Blu-ray Papat ei pärjää liikenteessä, Dustin Hoffman juoksee, Laurence Olivier on vanha natsi ja kukaan muu kuin Hoffman ei ole, mitä sanovat olevansa ja Hoffmaninkin oletetaan olevan jotain muuta. Juutalaiset tykkäävät timanteista ja natsit juutalaisten timanteista. Ei kyllä mitenkään vahvinta kautensa jännäriä. Ilkeän natsin "omien" timanttien nouto pankkiholvista ei ihan tarjoa kilpakumppaniensa veroista pohjaa salaliittoilu- tai paranoiatarinalle. Spoilerina kerrottakoon"
