Well done satire. Intelligent and engaging.
Mark Cordia | Ravena, NY | 07/24/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Kingsly and Byrne are excellent in this biting satire that often turns to black comedy in an excellent commentary on modern high-powered wheeling and dealing in the corporate world. Twists and turns galore in a tightly woven plot that promises and delivers surprise after surprise in a wonderfuly written plot. Equally engaging is the sub-plot of Mr. and Mrs. anyone caught up in the aftermath of the duel between two media mogules (hence the title).An intelligent and engaging well writen movie for those who like to think about and be caught up in their entertainment."

"This movie displays in graffic style the damage done to ordinary people during the high profile business "war games" played out by too wealthy businessmen. Gabriel Byrne is superb, Ben Kingsley is up to the task as his adversary. Very relevant to today's world"
