A tough, gritty drama with an exceptionally original script. This is one of those very rare occasions in the last 50 years when a the British and Americans have come together and produced something truly wonderful.

there was a remake??
oh dear god... why can't people appreciate good films for what they are instead of repackaging them in a braindead obnoxious format. i am ashamed to be young sometimes! james stewart is perhaps my favourite actor of all time. this film is certainly a great one indeed.

You are so right, this version puts the remake to shame.

So much better than the remake with James Stewart cast against type in a gritty no-nonsense role. The tension is maintained throughout - only the occasional bit of hammy over-acting from some of the supporting players mars the proceedings.
