The Holcroft Covenant

John Frankenheimer can always be relied upon to provide a good spy yarn when need and when the material is based on a Robert Ludlum novel you just know things will be good. In the case of THE HOLCROFT COVENANT, if Michael Caine had not been in the lead the whole thing would have gone to pot. Fortunately for us he is in the lead and this is what makes the film so enjoyable. A bit thick in the plot department, an area they could have shored up on had they stuck more closely to the book, this will still satify your hunger for good old cold war spy action and be sure not to miss the mardis gras scene.
