MARATHON MAN (Theatrical Release USA 1976)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Marathon Man
has so much happening in its opening scenes that it becomes almost confusing and then suddenly mellows out as two men run their cars into a small oil truck. Dustin Hoffman and Roy Schieder play strong parts in this film. The suspense turns on and off throughout the film. The movie serves a mature audience and has some of the best acting that can be seen on the big screen.
