Crime B movie of minimal ambition.
2 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Outside of now middle aged Talmadge's stunts, which include leaping a couple of storeys into a truck, this formula reporter cracks crime ring piece is the pits. Support cast, decors, filming and script are all lackluster. The use of vintage motor vehicles and shooting square on make the piece seem five years earlier than it is.

Things are not helped by the DVD transfer viewed which appeared to be heavily cropped round the edges - the changeover cues almost out of frame.

It's curious to see what Talmadge, Henry Hathaway's second unit man got up to but not encouraging.
