Danger: Disturbing Graphic Sex Scene( Pass on this Movie )

Another reviewer stated, "the sex scenes border on pornographic, especially at the beginning, when two of the main characters enact a rape. This was not essential to the story." I AGREE! I was horrified even though I saw this on a bus trip with many others on a small screen--how embarrassing! Take the move and throw it in the trash. Sure, I was tempted to give it to give it 2 stars. It does have action but deeply regretted being exposed to such a graphic beginning...which was totally unnecessary for the movie. Our children deserve far better-AMEN.

Film noir throwback

This is a 40s film noir throwback. Only in the 1940s the sexual friction, due to the Hayes code, was alluded to more than it was explicitly stated. In this film things are briefly more explicit, but the film hightails it quickly into full detective antics with crosses and double crosses. Although the film depicts life and death it never seems to take itself too seriously in presenting its characters and the film eventually feels a bit predictable...even though the ride was fun.
