Time Out says

The Cold War is over - or is it? Retired CIA agent Sam Boyd (Hackman) is recalled for one last job: he must travel to Berlin with a former State Department mole (Baryshnikov), plus a briefcase containing $2m to exchange for a captured American pilot. But Sam discovers that he has been betrayed by his own people, and our unlikely duo go on the run with CIA and KGB in hot pursuit. This offers familiar spy movie clichés, and although Meyer's direction creates a moderately menacing atmosphere, his script is at best undemanding, at worst simplistic. Hackman rises above the material, which is more than can be said for Baryshnikov.
