Tedious, glib and reactionary, this hovers in CIA fantasy land (Mission Impossible time warp). In an anonymous European banana republic, an idealistic young WASP military junta overthrow a corrupt and fascistic civilian government of Balkan villains. Despite O'Toole's endearingly ironic performance as the double-crosser in the pack, the moral remains objectionably circular: 'change breeds reaction, so join the reactionaries'. Miss it.
