I agree with the positive reviews others have posted. I won't spoilanything for those who have not seen it, but the film is disturbinglyaccurate to the reality of the past few years (circa 2004). Wrong IsRight is a black comedy and an excellent work of science fiction. Thecredit goes to Richard Broo...
Reporter Sean Connery is hot on the trail of a terrorist seeking nuclearweapons. He's tracked by the CIA and other governmental agencies as well asvarious media outlets. Everyone manipulates everyone and in the end you'releft wondering if there is anyone we can trust either in government or inthe me...
Some films are truly ahead of their time. The 1982 satire Wrong IsRight is such a film. Though deemed unbelievable when first releasednearly three decades ago its satire of TV news being driven more byentertainment then facts, Islamic terrorists seeks nuclear weapons andinternational intrigue makes ...
I wish this movie was more readily available..it IS prophetic.I saw itnearly twenty years ago and have never forgotten it.Connery puts in one ofhis best performances as the cynical, jaded, journalist.I would urge allstudents of US foreign policy to rent-and analyze-thisfilm...
This is not Richard Brooks at his best as a movie-maker, but it is apowerful political film, with a great script (written by Brooks)whichwas wrongly (wrong is right?) dismissed as a "satire" and "comedy" inthe early eighties. It is now seen in a very different light, as thewhole plot seems to descri...
WRONG IS RIGHT was not marketed right when it came out in 1982 and wasdue to fail. The movie ad tag lines called it "Dr. Strangelove for the80's," which was a lame attempt to encapsulate a dark comedy byreferring to another classic dark comedy, which also dealt with nuclearbombs. I think people were...
I first saw this film during it's initial run and fell in love with itimmediately. I was falling out of my seat laughing. The writing wassharp,the pace brisk and the story dead-on. Sean Connery was great, but thisisprobably the best role and performance of Robert Conrad's life. And Iwasknocked a...
Richard Brooks' "Wrong Is Right" is a vicious and savage satire of manyaspects of society. Television, news reporting, politics and pleasuredomesare just a few of the targets Brooks' aims at in this truly underratedfilm.I really don't want to give away the plot because one of the truepleasuresof thi...
Just a few hours ago I caught this film on a cable TV channel and hurried tothe IMDB to find out the year of release -- 1982. The concept ofpresidential "plausible deniability" was before the Iran Contra hearings.What came even more to mind as I watched Sean Connery, a favorite actor ofmine since t...
I'd never heard of this, then found out it's the man with the deadlylens, which I'd heard of but not seen. Connery's presence drove me tobuy it, and it's not good. It wants to be a sort of cross between DrStrangelove and Mash, but it just isn't that funny, unless you find thename General Wombat (?) ...
Wrong is Right was handicapped by indifferent marketing; it had a goodcast, decent script, good production values. It also came out justafter the trough of the Carter administration malaise... and during theIranian hostage crisis, when people did not want to see MORE terroriststhan they already knew...
This is an unusual film in that that the satire is razor sharp anddoesn't age a bit, but the film doesn't work at all. There are a fewdecent gags, but the film is ragged and not terribly funny. The moviedoesn't know whether its wants to be a comedy, a serious drama, acaper, or an action flick. And i...
Richard Brooks directed this seemingly forgotten satire that stars SeanConnery as successful TV newsman Patrick Hale, who is hot on the trailof a big news story involving stolen nuclear warheads hidden insuitcases and international terrorism, leading from the Pentagon to theWhite House, where Presid...
This uneven, obviously low-budgeted, all star cast political blackdrama is a difficult movie to assess because it depends strongly onwhat criteria one uses to judge a movie. From a current politicalmessaging drama, it is uncanny in its authenticity even more than 30years later. It remains relevant i...
I found this film to be extremely sharp and clever. I was expecting acomedy and although it is funny, it is more sharp political satire thanpure belly laughs. It is very well written, characters played bybrilliant actors, and is prophetic in its story. Pretty much depictsDesert Storm 1 and 2, the Wa...
What you're about to read is confidential. Well actually it's not, itsshow-business. This sorely forgotten 80s feature "Wrong is Right" is ascathingly windswept satirical pot-shot on the political scene and theinfluence of the media's technology manipulation on portraying that.Sean Connery plays Pat...
The fact is the editing is what sunk this film, ultimately. I hadalways seen minor time gaps that bothered me, especially with SeanConnery in the lead. Leslie Neilson proves he can act without thePolice Squad deadpan.That aside, I had to get this film off ebay on VHS to view it again.I'm glad to hea...
Although this film is rather coarsely made by todays standards, thesubject matter still makes it eminently watchable. It is a black comedyset in the time of much turmoil in the world about oil and its powerover people in tandem with the idea that news these days leans towardits being a form of enter...
First of all, several have said this was a dark comedy/politicalsatire. Sorry I just don't see any humor at all in this movie. Nonewhatsoever. I came across it when it was recently broadcast on TV. Myfirst thought was, that it was a low budget made for TV movie from the70's. Mainly because it had th...
In Richard Brooks's "Wrong Is Right" technological advances madeeverything looks so different that even wrong things are right things.There's no heroes, no villains, no good guy and no bad guy, there'sonly situations and reactions to it. Here a famous reporter andadventurer named Patrick Hale (Sean ...
I have been talking about this movie since I saw it in the early '80's. It has always been a scary look into the future which has now arrived.George Bush standing squarely behind something that was done behind hisback without his knowledge. Sell our ports to the Arabs. Why stop atthe ports? George s...
It's incredible that this movie was made in 1982. The writer must havehad a crystal ball. And that last part about the suitcases with atomicdevices and how their existence is used to justify an US attack on acertain country ... Though in this case they did have the bomb but haddecided not to use it ...
This is a weak film with a troubled history of cuts and re-naming. Itdoesn't work at all. Firstly the dramaturgy is all wrong. It's veryslow moving at first and then hastily and unsatisfactorily moves to anend. But there is also (and that may have to do with the cuts) anuneasy moving between genres....
My wife and I viewed this movie this weekend....having NO idea what theplotwould be as we bought the video in a bundle at a garagesale.We were absolutely stunned as the plot unfolded to the similaritiescontained in the 9/11 tragedy. We even heard Bin Laden's namementioned!I have written one other r...
This early 80s oddity has Sean Connery miscast as Patrick Hale, a TVanchorman cum roving reporter who heads out to trouble spots with thisTV camera and little else apparently. I can't really buy Connery in arole that George Clooney would be a shoe-in for today, it belongs moreto a Cary Grant than Cl...
