With the improbabilities usually found in such
28 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A lurid melodrama full of action, but with the improbabilities usually found in such. In the first half there is suspense, but this evaporates in the second half through the unconvincing quality of the action which is also very conventional. There are many people who, before such an offering, will "eat it up with their eyes"; but it will hardly go strongly with spectators who are particular or very intelligent. The photography is clear through the greater portion of it. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
