Well-paced, atmospheric "B" thriller with a few surprises
3 August 1999 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

Above-average Paramount "B" thriller from director Robert Siodmak. A few surprises (including an imaginative action sequence and a jolting revelation during a climatic confrontation) elevate a standard falsely-accused-man-on-the-lam plot. Well-paced and atmospheric.
