Not Raging, But Fun Anyway, 11 May 2000
Author: mackjay from Out there in the dark

Not truly a Film Noir, "The Raging Tide" works pretty well as a good B-movie. There are fine performances from Richard Conte, Stephen McNally, Alex Nichol and Shelley Winters. Charles Bickford doing a Swedish accent is a bit hard to swallow, but he has been great elsewhere. The film opens with a very noirish sequence and may disappoint those looking for a real entry in that much-discussed, hard-to-pin-down genre. But there is enough melodrama to entertain all but the most demanding viewers.
