Clint Eastwood Movie #6
Synopsis: Art-loving professional assassin is paid big bucks to climb a mountain and whack a Soviet agent... who was probably going to fall to his death, anyway.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this action thriller about international intrigue that takes place on the Swiss Alps.”
What Did I Learn?: If a cute airline stewardess is super-nice to you, agrees to share a cab after the flight, and then goes to your place for drinks and casual sex, you might want to check your wallet the next morning.
You Might Like This Movie If: You know that Swiss mountains are very, very dangerous.
Really?: Hmm... for a government agent and a self-professed karate black belt, Mr. Pope kinda sucks in hand-to-hand combat, doesn’t he?
Rating: The Eiger Sanction is tad predictable at times (my Dad instantly guessed the identity of the second villain), but it’s otherwise an interesting and quite watchable 1970s adventure film. 7/10 stars.
