A brisk style and an edgy rhythm…the actors seem to enjoy their showy roles, especially Mr. Bates...and Mr. Hoskins brings his customary conviction to the role of the feisty priest.” – Janet Maslin, The New York Times

“Mike Hodges directs this interesting screen adaptation of the best-selling thriller by Jack Higgins…a cut above other recent entries into the genre because it ambitiously muses on the difficulty once violent men have ridding themselves of the mark of Cain.” – Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice
