The Eiger Sanction

The most puzzling of Eastwood's self-directed films, lacking the ironic detachment that characterised his long journey from the Man with No Name to Bronco Billy. Shot in a straightforward adventure style, with Eastwood as the art lecturer cum cold-blooded assassin hired to kill his victim while climbing the North face of the Eiger, the movie is little but a series of nice panoramas and clich├ęd action sequences.
