Just as Boring as Most Television
10 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An FBI agent (apparently something fairly new), a crime boss, a little Asian profiling and xenophobia, a few crooks, some cars, a couple chases, and nothing the least bit memorable. I watched this as part of a collection because I'm curious about the this period in film history. These were probably made in a week and offered a bit of diversion in the midst of the depression and before we got into the war. We have a couple strong women, one on each side, and a plot that's not the least bit interesting. There's no suspense and no great question to be answered. It's no more nor less than it was meant to be. The performances are OK but there's that deep moral fervor that seems to permeate everything. Just another film.
