Time Out says

One of the complex spy games which proliferated in the mid-'60s: more Cold War crises of conscience in East Germany, with Sinatra as the wartime crack shot unwillingly reactivated for an assassination plot. A tortuously hollow narrative is further obfuscated by Furie's customarily flashy direction, which fragments the looking glass to the point of impenetrability. (From a novel by Francis Cifford.

focusing on technical storytelling flaws seems disingenuous when so much emotional atmosphere is offered.i found the flow and tension perfectly acquired in the whole movie;if i had been involved in this production,i would have been fully satisfied with its place in cinematic history.it gave a response to the jfk assas./military industrial complex intrigue.one recalls the lockheed security connection to rfk/1968,ww2 trading with the enemy and 1950's intelligence nazi hires.so much unlearned from a movie that prestigious reviewers found unrewarding.ivory tower syndrome exemplified in the excessively objective review dismissals.a true gem in my opinion(tcm take note!).
