Time Out says

Conventional and convoluted tale of betrayal and death among spies, with Lancaster's CIA agent coming under suspicion, being marked for extermination by the reluctant but seemingly persuadable freelance killer he trained (Delon), and turning in his disillusionment to his equally disillusioned Russian opposite number (Scofield) for aid. Winner directs with typically crass abandon, wasting a solid performance from Lancaster and a story that a director like Jean-Pierre Melville might have made something of.
