Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"9.7. Bogien karisma dominoi varsin piinaavastikin etenevää jännitysnäytelmää, jossa perhe jää pankkivangiksi kotiinsa. Muuten ammattitaitoinen teos kärsii hieman asetelmansa kaavamaisuudesta, jota ei tällä kertaa ole peitetty niin onnistuneesti kuin parhaissa vastaavissa aikakauden filmeissä. Kokonaisuus voisi olla enemmänkin kuin kuvaus kovan paineen alla selviytyvästä amerikkalaisesta varakkaasta ydinperheestä. Arvostan toki poliisivoimien ylireagoimiselle kohdistettua piikki"

"Watched: 27.4. Bogie makes the performance as well, but I think him has created tough guy detective roles than role like this. But it was a nice change from him. Fredric March was also great. "
