Critic Reviews for El Pacto Holcroft

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Frankenheimer'a film is a real mess, being both mechanical and almost incomprehensible.

August 3, 2021 | Full Review…

Is Caine believable as a Manhattan architect? Even one with a Cockney fixation? It doesn't matter, because Caine performances have become axiomatic: No matter what the movie, he's always good.

August 3, 2021 | Full Review…

A muddled narrative deficient in thrills or plausiblity.

March 26, 2009 | Full Review…

From the blood soaked ashes of a dog's dinner like this it is yet possible to glean moments of derisive pleasure. And Caine, once again, strides through the rubble with the air of a man who has read the script but is still hoping for a miracle.

June 24, 2006 | Full Review…

It's like a parody of the espionage thrillers it never quite joins the ranks of.

January 18, 2022 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's easy to blame once-talented director John Frankenheimer for making this farrago unwatchable, but the more likely obstacle is that the Robert Ludlum source novel is cinematically intractable.
