Great movie for Charlie Muffin fans
I have been a Brian Freemantle/Charlie Muffin fan for years. This is the first Charlie Muffin story, and I was curious how well it would translate over. With the exception of the ending, this movie is very faithful to the book (or my memory of the book).

If you are expecting James Bond, you'll be shocked. The idea behind Charlie is that he is an agent, not a superhero. Plagued by sore feet and disliking guns, he is not your hollywood spy. David Hemmings did a TERRIFIC job in portraying Charlie and giving him an everyman quality.

The only problem I had with the whole movie was the cover shot. It is just too "out of character" looking.
