    Little remains of the original but its weakest element - its overelaborate intrigue - and Hackford seems only to scramble it further.
  2. Not even a bravura performance from Woods, some steamy love scenes between Bridges and Ward, and a thrilling daylight car chase down Sunset Boulevard can pull this confusing remake out of the doldrums.

    The result is a flat, dumbly brutal movie, full of overplotted complexity and empty of all emotional resonance, except that provided by the presence of Jane Greer (the original film's dark lady, here doing a supporting role) and Richard Widmark.

Initial pace of the movie is very captivating however as it passing and Terry familiarizes himself with Jessie's love, movie somehow loses its beat. There is not much clarification what is the direction of the movie. And it does not stop there near the climax it gets us confused about who is the bad guy and whoever it is, is he really bad? And that is how it ends. Full Review »
