Forget Aldrich and Mitchum…Nothing to See Here
3 May 2014 | by LeonLouisRicciSee all my reviews

One of Robert Mitchum's and Director Robert Aldrich's Least Impressive Films. Both Usually Reliable Professionals are Off Their Game on this one. It is a Flat and Tired Movie from the Beginning, Never Managing to Grab Hold of the Story's Intrigue and it is Lacking in the Period Setting of WWII.

The Movie Looks Like a 1959 Movie set in 1941. The Action is Dull and Telegraphed and the Suspense Never Builds Beyond its Premise. The Script is a bit Confusing and Nothing in this Misfire Maintains Anything More than Mediocrity.

A Dud and a Disappointment from All Involved. The Almost Two-Hour Length is Excruciating.
