The Jigsaw Man ½

The Jigsaw Man (Terence Young, 1983) 1/10

Troubled production became a silly spy thriller about a defected MI6 Director (Michael Caine) of no use longer to the Russians who gets a face lift and sent back to England to retreive a hidden list of spies. Once back home he contacts his daughter (Susan George) and plays a cat-and-mouse game with his former colleague (Laurence Olivier) and his cronies (Robert Powell & Charles Gray). Dull film has the somewhat pleasure of seeing both Olivier and Caine reuinited after "Sleuth" but both actors phone in their performances looking bored throughout.
