Well I really enjoyed this film, but it's clearly dated.

"Howard Hawks's classic noir sets the standard for private-detective flicks, with star turns by Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall."

"Too confusing, misleading, and with a weak payoff in the end. Definetly I am not very fond of Bogart's movies."

"26.2 Netflix new Kiharaisen juonen perässä ei oikein ollut motivaatiota edes yrittää pysyä, mutta kyllähän näitä Bogartin seikkailuja silti jotenkin mieluusti katselee."
