Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com "The House On 92nd Street" stands as a noxious example of patriotic pap disguised as faux docu film noir.

Steve D A clunky script and no name cast. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/28/24 Full Review nick s The opening narration gets a little tedious, but it does peter out thankfully. The drama that follows is quite interesting, especially given its factual basis. The direction and acting is reasonable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the best movies I've ever seen. Technically accurate, underplayed acting, realistic AF and suspenseful. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member The best thrilling movie ever made! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Good yarn... big FBI promo. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I quite liked this film noir, which can basically be considered a police procedural of work done by the FBI against Stateside Nazis during World War II or a propaganda film in support of the FBI. The cast was excellent, the story was solid and the direction by Henry Hathaway was inspired. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews
