| There are some redeeming qualities here....
If one ignores the pathetic quality of the actual film stock used to bring this to the screen, If one ignores the sad overacting of Mr. Chevalier, If one ignores the convoluted plot, If one ignores the eccentric direction,

One will find some redeeming qualities in Panic Button:

The scenes of Europe, a more innocent Europe, a different mannered Europe were handled well. I really felt transported to the early 60's.

One is able to observe the way that our sensibilities have changed in such few years.

We observe that the sophistication of moviemaking has come a very long way from those days.

I watched this movie with not as much cringing as other reviewers. I tend to discern some of the good things that directors try to bring to movies.

And lastly, I did laugh and I did smile where I should have. So for that, I must at least give Panic Button a "6".
