A Superior Chase Film
10 December 2006 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

Rogue Male is a superior chase film with a superb characterization by Peter O'Toole, who occupies about 80% of the screen time.

Absolutely top-notch direction, cinematography, and editing and a respectable, not overlong, 103 minute running time.

It's a pity the DVDs have used such deteriorated source material.

The movie, if in perfect condition would be worth 10/10, as it is among the very best, however, as it is it is only worth about 7/10 because of the deterioration of the print.

If you get a chance to see Rogue Male, please do as it is worth it, even with the poor print.
