There is a denseness in the plot
13 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This two-reel photoplay contains originality if it is faulty in some other respects. It is well acted by the entire cast, especially Mr. Baggot. There is a denseness in the plot, also in the photography that will puzzle the ordinary spectator; the lighting or camera work is spasmodic. The invention of the hero is not made clear to the layman, and the blood test is too abrupt and is hardly interesting. Some of the titles are misplaced evidently. It will go with people who visualize only. - The Moving Picture World, April 11, 1914
