The Odessa File

"Weak"

The Odessa File Review


Here's a long way to go for nothing in the way of payoff: Jon Voight stars as a European journalist who masquerades as a former Nazi in postwar Germany in order to infiltrate a gang of ex-SS members intent on launching a Fourth Reich. Unfortunately, this ends up being mostly a series of mano-a-mano confrontations behind closed doors, with the "revelations" reaching absurd level by the end.
