Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The next-to-last film from Richard Brooks was not a success when originally released but has built a cult following over the years. If viewed through a cult-movie mindset, it's easy to see why Wrong Is Right is appealing to that group of viewers. The script has a scathing, darkly funny take on international politics that one wouldn't expect from a well-funded Hollywood project of the early 1980's and also mixes up offbeat humor and message-oriented drama in a way that keeps the film from affecting a comfortable Hollywood style. Wrong Is Right is also packed to the rafters with a bevy of character actors who revel in getting such gutsy material to work with: Sean Connery shows a sly sense of humor in the lead role but many scenes are stolen by G.D. Spradlin as a non-nonsense intelligence agency chief, Rosalind Cash as a fiery female vice-president and Horst Buchholz as a wily arms dealer playing both sides of the fence. Behind the camera, Richard Brooks gives the film a swift pace and plays out the film's odd mix of messages and absurdist humor with a straight-faced approach that keeps the narrative from sliding off the rails. The end result is probably still too eccentric for mainstream audiences but cult movie fans with a yen for unusual Hollywood films are likely to consider Wrong Is Right a hidden treasure.
