Audience Reviews

3 stars

A well-crafted cold-war thriller that has wild combination of great special effects and absurdity that still makes for solid action entertainment. Not one of Eastwood`s best but still entertaining enough get your money`s worth

Firefox is an odd film. In 1982 you can't help but think it was a few years too late as all the really good Cold War films were made in the 70s and where tons better. Fredrick Forsyth it ain't but there is something quite clumsy about it that I quite like, not so bad it's good but something uniquely silly that I find charming. A very generous 3 stars.

The first half of this movie is utterly flawless and therefore I can't say it's bad. While the last forty minutes are absolutely ridiculous, the rest is good enough to even things out. Clint Eastwood does a great job at playing a man of disguises and looks as threatening as possible, even up against classic Indiana Jones and Star Wars henchmen like Toht and Admiral Piett. There's a really great espionage story at the heart of everything, which should be remembered above the cheesy airplane scenes and psychic Russian commands.
