4.0 out of 5 stars Peter O'Toole at any price.... May 29, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...but at $3.95, you can't miss.

OK, at times the sound is muffled, the color washes out, there's a bit of streakiness, the picture seems to shake, and it has the appearance of the usual low budget film. BUT, the movie is absolutely riveting and the flaws are minor distractions. I watched it then had to watch it again.

Not the typical commando-trained man on the run flick, as in The Bourne Identity, but a slower paced, perhaps more thoughtful type of story. Sir Robert (O'Toole)goes to ground while being pursued after failing to assassinate Hitler and being tortured then escaping. We see his determination and ingenuity (again, not the usual Hollywood sort of stunts), but also the man he is.

I did not catch on to the reason why he went after Hitler until later in the movie, so disagree with an earlier viewer. However, I've not read the book before seeing the movie. There are hints about what happened and when I realized what had occured, it increased the tension, rather than ruining the end for me.

John Standing is terrific as the pursuer, Harold Pinter has a nice scene, Alistair Sim plays the doddering uncle well, but it is Peter O'Toole who makes the movie.

O'Toole is excellent at dry humor and getting across a page of dialog with just a look. There's a wealth of both in Rogue Male.

It's a shame this movie is not better visually and does not get much notice among O'Toole's works. It is, however, a movie that will keep you guessing about what will happen and is well worth a look. In a recent interview, O'Toole said Rogue Male was his favorite movie and it is easy to see why.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "Rogue Male" is Superb!! August 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw this movie 6 years ago and wondered how I'd missed it for so long. O'toole gives an awesome performance as he fumbles and then haphazardly (with the greatest of luck) eludes his pursuers. This movie puts a great spin on the statement "what if" some one had killed Hitler, though it is in no way a documentary. It's the "CAT & MOUSE" standard in my book!!
ENJOY.

1.0 out of 5 stars A word of warning about this release August 26, 2004
Format:DVD
Being a great fan of Peter O'Toole, I was delighted when I discovered that one of his films I've wanted to see for a very long time had finally been released on dvd. Yesterday said dvd arrived at my place, and although I've had so far no time to watch the whole movie, I nevertheless checked the dvd with regard to quality. The result: The quality is just abonimable. The transfer seems to have been directly taken from a second or third generation (bootleg?) video cassette; the overall miserable quality not only of the picture (I've seen mpeg files that were better) but also of the sound even lets me suspect that what we hear and see on this dvd released by the "Passion" label is a recording of a VHS video playback (all I'm missing is someone's head suddenly appearing in front of the monitor and/or the sound of someone coughing). What this boils down to: All but the O'Toole fans most sturdy of heart - beware!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of O'Toole's best December 25, 2009
By Quixote
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is near the top of the list of the best movies I've ever seen. After attempting to assasinate Hitler when England was still trying to make nice with the Fuehrer, O'Toole is on his own, persona non grata with the British establishment. The Germans come after him in England itself, and O'Toole is forced to take cover in his own land. O'Toole is the epitome of British nobility, resourceful, sarcastic, cool as ice. The film ending is a bit sanctimonious and slightly disappointing, with O'Toole pictured as being ready to sacrifice himself because he is so torn by the loss of his beloved. Overall, a terrific movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars They Shouldn't Have Messed With The Book March 10, 2004
By Sweeper
Format:VHS Tape
The novel, by Geoffrey Household, is well-paced and builds to a satisfying climax based on profound revelations. The movie pushes those revelations to the beginning, which robs the main character of his motivation to swing into action at the end. I enjoyed the movie to a point, but this is one of those cases where the film makers would have done better to stay more consistent with the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rogue Male March 10, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I had seen this movie on TV once. It is a good movie, very interesting and holds your interest. My only complaint is the quality of the VHS tape I received. Color and sound were of poor quality and small portion of tape was unviewable. I know this was a TV movie, but I would think there would be a better quality transfer to VHS tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant take care with which version you buy September 1, 2010
Format:DVD
I first saw this magnificent film years ago. The acting story and plot simply blew me away it was that good. I sat and watched it throughout with no distractions nor breaks. Peter O'Toole is magnificent as the Upper Class hero who seeks revenge for his fiancée's cruel death due to the Nazis. His revenge? To assassinate Hitler. As we all know he didn't succeed and here the story sets off on a cracking pace. Tortured by the Nazis (I won't give details!) He escapes and thanks to a WW1 German ex POW who respected the British he gets back to England. But here the plot twist even further, Britain is not at war with the Germans you see the Aristo's have more German cousins that Queen Victoria. So he is on his own! Soon framed he goes on the run. The Nazis seek to kill our hero so he goes to ground in England. Now imagine hiding yourself in rural England so no one knows you are there? A top English Lord/ Nazi agent is set to find him and does so. Here I won't spoil the plot but I was in tears at one incident!! And cheered at another. This is the only film that I have seen that is better than the Geoffrey Household book. O'Toole is simply magnificent and I believe this to be better than his Lawrence portrayal (some praise indeed). The ending on the film comes with regret that such a great film could go on for longer rather than some of today's offerings where the finish is a relief. I guarantee you will enjoy this film and it will stay with you a long time. Worth a chance? Yes.

t is a different type of movie.. Peter O'Toole does an outstanding job, he is gritty, and strong, and a survivor. A really good story for the "good guys."
