      Bosley Crowther New York Times Cut down to its essentials, that's just about all it is: in short. It can only be fully recommended to those who have a deep and morbid interest in crime. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 28, 2006 Full Review Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine The film's title is a reference to its entwined physical and moral frameworks. May 21, 2006 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a hit-and-miss endeavor that’s at its best when focused on Joe’s increasingly frantic attempts at clearing his name... Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 19, 2022 Full Review Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Visually splendid film noir thriller shot in New York City. Aug 9, 2007 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Probably a minor Mann, but still very much worth seeing. Aug 9, 2007 Full Review John J. Puccio Movie Metropolis ...bristles with sharp angles, playful juxtapositions of light and shadow, and every facet of film noir you would expect to find in the very best of the breed.

      Audience Member What the ****? You are the bomb diggity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review deke p Very interesting Anthony Mann dirrected movie. Lots old NYC scenery and some familiar old actors. HEY RT STAFF‼️: Why is 'release date 2007' the ONLY date you have for this movie and i had to Research to find it was 1950⁉️⁉️⁉️ This a an unexcuseable continued RT failure pattern. please correct it soon. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The first half is a bit slow while the characters are all lined up. But the second half is worth the price, with empty city streets, shootouts and a tight car chase finale. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member would like to see a remake done today, as this hasn't aged well, though this is a worthy plot Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review s r Not a bad one. The car race at the end was impressive for taking place in wall st. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Director Anthony Mann delivers another tough little film noir. Farley Granger is an average joe who decides to steal a large sum of money and then finds himself being chased down by mobsters. It's a tight story and Mann directed the film with style and doesn't waste any time telling it. A car chase at the end of the film is particularly thrilling, which was nicely done using real NYC locations. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
