It’s a World War II thriller so out of date the only words to describe it are also obsolete — Potboiler and Cornball.

The superb English stage director David Leveaux keeps the pacing taut while creating space for his actors to work their magic.

David Leveaux's film cannily incorporates elements of spycraft and sheer trash into a familiar formula.
