Review

"One of Sean Connery's least-seen films, this Richard Lester vehicle manages to be both politically astute and darkly funny at the same time. Set in Cuba as the Castro revolution is coming to fruition, it stars Connery as an aging mercenary trying to decide which side it pays to be paid by. Even as the Batista government is being overthrown, he is putting the spark to an old relationship with a factory manager (Brooke Adams), while American businessmen (particularly a well-cast Jack Weston) scramble to get the most bang for their buck. Lester's style--playing dramatic scenes while subverting them with comic business in the background--is in top form here. But this film never found an audience; too bad. "--Marshall Fine
