I couldn't get it
2 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe I've gotten to the point where I've seen so many movies I have a hard time telling them apart, but this movie was extremely dull. It was about a bunch of people who were committing crimes like murder and I guess radar was being used to find them. This film mostly suffers from being boring. It's sad to see a film so old that's so dull. I guess these times weren't necessarily the golden age of movies. At least this one didn't have giant animals or killer animals like every other bad movie released in the 1950's.

The worst part is how I simply didn't care about what was going on. The characters had no depth at all. When you have a story where everyone looks the same, that's a huge problem. I understand why people had a hard time telling the good guys apart from the bad guys. This whole thing is pointless and adds absolutely nothing unique to the wide variety of movies in existence. It was hard to tell what was going on and I didn't care. *1/2
