"This is an interesting if flawed film. I thought the potted history of Iran and the interfence in its affairs by both Britain and the US at the start of the film was useful. For many in the audience it must have been an eye-opener. The story that succeeds it is tense and compelling. Yet it's accompanied by a sense of US triumphalism that contradicts the content of that opening. As I understand that the final departure went without a hitch the last minute action sequence came across as very phony. Still it held my attention and there was some sharp dialogue. 3 stars."
