Rod Steiger, Lee Remick and Trevor Howard star in this taut cat and mouse espionage thriller centered on a plot to bring England to its knees.
Hennessy (Steiger) is an Irish demolitions expert whose wife and daughter are accidently killed by British troops. Mad with guilt, he sets out to destroy the Royal Family and the entire English government by blowing up Parliament. Soon Hennessy is being hunted by both Scotland Yard and the IRA (who fear he will irreparable hurt their cause), while the clock ticks down he comes increasingly closer to realizing his devastating goal.
Climaxed by brilliant intercutting of actual newsreel footage, Hennessy is a chilling tale of vengeance that will keep you on the edge of your seat from its first jolting scene to its last explosive moment.
