It is well-directed and its cinematography is excellent. Its rapid editing is really neat. Baker is excellent as a cold-blooded agent who has been double-crossed by his own people. “Innocent Bystanders” also has a couple alumni from the 007 movies: Donald Pleasence from “You Only Live Twice” (the original Dr. Evil!) and Vladek Sheybal from “From Russia With Love”. If you in the mood for a dark spy adventure, “Innocent Bystanders” is for you.
