Scenic and action-filled but poorly written and hammily acted

Dr. Jonathan Hemlock is a professor of art, a highly skilled mountain climber and a former assassin for the US government. He is lured out of retirement when a former colleague is murdered. The targets: the men who killed his friend. One catch: killing one of them will require him to climb his nemesis, the mountain that he has twice failed to scale: the Eiger.

Directed by Clint Eastwood, scenic and action-filled but poorly written and hammily acted. Clumsy script with contrived plot developments, one-dimensional characters and dialogue that is ridiculous at times. Had a few moments when I thought "Did they just say that?". Yes, things were different 40+ years ago but some of the dialogue would have been pretty odd even for the 70s.

Going with the one-dimensional characters, some pretty hammy acting. Even Clint Eastwood seems quite unconvincing. He can't blame the director - he was directing himself!

This all said, the clumsiness and weakness of script mostly occurs in the first half of the movie - it gets better as it goes along. The cinematography is good, with some great Alpine scenes. Despite the generally badly-written dialogue, there are some good one-liners in there too.

Overall, beneath Eastwood's abilities as both director and actor and not worth watching.

Weak dialog, pathetic acting, and a plot that has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. I guess this used to pass for an acceptable adventure movie in the 70's, but is laughable today. The only exciting and memorable parts are the actual mountain climbing. It looks very dangerous, until you remember that there's a whole film crew up there with them without all the fancy paraphernalia.

Clint's Totem Pole

This is almost like a Bond movie: beautiful women, crazy and somehow scarred villain, great fight scenes, INCREDIBLE climbing scenes, stylish costumes and luxurious locations. You want to see Eastwood as a bespectacled professor who is actually a spy. Why he needs to climb some mountain now escapes me, but I watch spy movies for all of the above reasons. When he climbs that Totem Pole FOR REAL, I'm almost about to faint FOR REAL. I love the scenery and how well the costumes match the scenery. Thanks to this movie, I learned about Brenda Venus. So, I would say the casting is great, too. I love all the sexist/racist slurs that actually poke fun at sexism/racism. No one would dare do that today. Or climb the Totem Pole FOR REAL.
