Yasser Medina Cinefilia I don't know if it can be said exactly that 'Across the Pacific' is an enjoyable John Huston movie, because in my opinion it is a bit regular and predictable with its spy adventure starring Humphrey Bogart. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Apr 17, 2021 Full Review Jose Maria Santos Cine-Mundial One of the best spy movies we've seen in a long time. [Full Review in Spanish] Sep 19, 2019 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com John Huston directeds this enjoyable WWII feature, which reunites the Maltese Falcon stars, Bogart, Mary Astor, and Sydney Greenstreet. Rated: B+ Nov 20, 2010 Full Review Steve Crum Video-Reviewmaster.com Fine John Huston wartime flick, bolstered by Bogart.

byron p It's a movie that was still filming in December 1941 before the Pearl Harbor attack. It is a US/Japanese espionage plot to sabotage a U.S. asset. I thought the movie was entertaining and enjoyed it from beginning until the end. I thought it was a decent plot that kept my interest and wondering what was going to happen next. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This is perhaps one of the most underrated movies of classic Hollywood. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review steve d Astor and Greenstreet make it fun. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member It is with noble intent to reassemble actors from a successful film like The Maltese Falcon, but in this case despite Bogart, Greenstreet, and Astor's usually fine performances the story itself is so convoluted it leaves the audience in "the wilderness of mirrors" trying to figure out just WTF is going on? Not to mention there is no chemistry between Bogart and Astor. She is not the most feminine of actresses. And trying to figure out who is who brings a bit of credence to the adage "some people all look the same". By the time it becomes clearer the entire experience is anti-climatic. Good luck with it and syonara. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Humphrey Bogart at his best. Had not seen much of Mary Astor before. I liked her. Terrible hairdo. What happened at the end, Mary forgot about her dead father? And of course Sidney Greenstreet is wonderful. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Not a great film, but I enjoyed it. The film stars 3 cast members from "The Maltese Falcon" and is the same director, John Huston. I liked Bogart in this, and also enjoyed Sydney Greenstreet and Mary Astor. It's certainly worth checking out from fans of classic cinema.
