In the Second World War British safecracker Eddie Chapman
is quite prepared to work for whichever side offers him the
greatest thrills - and the most money. He can either offer
his services as a spy to the Nazis or remain loyal to Britain
and face a lengthy jail sentence. He opts for the former.
But various Nazis doubt Chapman's loyalty to their cause,
and with good reason. Making contact with the British, Chapman
offers to act as a double agent - for a fee, of course. But

hands of Young a slightly lumpy script is transformed into
a solid and entertaining wartime romp.
It's not a classic but Triple Cross is a worthwhile
addition to the collection of anyone serious about war films.
