Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Doubtless, like most Preminger, it'll improve with age."
‑ , Time Out
"Muddled, overlong and a not very suspenseful political thriller."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A suspense melodrama of such ineptitude, lethargy and loose ends that only someone with his arm being twisted would take credit for it."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"While the plot meanders at times, and the film's politics are confused, the reliable performances and Preminger's steady pacing make for a generally involving movie."
‑ , Film4
"The troubles in the Middle East have never been so yawnable."
