    "Probably one of the best assassin films that I've watched, and the pacing of this film is ahead of its time. Alain proved perfect for the job."

    "So glad to see this on the list. Watched this for an art subject and loved every second of it. The 1960 film scene has such a different character and enigma that is hard to duplicate. THe acting is not as intense as today's but there is something about the sequences and the scenes. "

    "This is a rare piece of art if I ever seen one. Yeah I guess the dialogue doesn't work for our generation, but the concept and the cinematography was good, almost timeless. And DELON IS HOT!!!"

    "A good way to past time guys, especially for oldies. While the characters look like they know what they doing, the cinematography was quite poor that you'd think the director doesnt know what he's doing. "
