Clint Eastwood directs and stars in this international intrigue action thriller that takes place on the Swiss Alps. Hemlock, a retired professional assassin (Eastwood), who has turned toward the calmer pursuit of art collecting, is suddenly forced out of retirement to hunt a deadly double agent who murdered a close friend. The hunt takes Eastwood on a breathtaking journey up the Swiss Alps with a team of mountain climbers - one of whom is the man he seeks, though his identity is as yet unknown. The top-notch action film, based on the novel by Trevanian, features some of the most exciting mountain climbing sequences ever filmed.

Though one of Clint's weaker efforts as director, it's perhaps saved by the breathtaking visuals.....

The Eiger Sanction lacks shape, rhythm, and any notable tone or point-of-view.
