I went expecting to be entertained by a tough, fast, realistic melodrama... I sat through a meandering parade of conventional TV types wandering through situations so vaguely defined that it would be charity to call them implausible. Full Review

A strikingly dramatic, realistic and provocatively topical film. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- It's a good, engaging movie - great-looking, too, with top-notch photography and production design - but it tends to fall apart when you start kicking the tires and peek under the hood. Full Review

Shot in stark black and white, it shows the military not as the usual buffoons, but as ruthless right-wingers with a political agenda. Full Review
Jul 22, 2008
John Frankenheimer directed, too much in love with technique, though he ably taps the neuroticism of Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, and Fredric March. Full Review
