Apesar de determinados elementos que não envelheceram bem (como as referências na trilha às paqueras do herói), tem uma premissa fascinante que consegue gerar boa dose de suspense.

Audience Reviews for D.O.A.

½

"I want to report a murder." "Who was murdered?" "I was." One of the great "grabber" openings in movie history doesn't disappoint, leading to a tense and fatalistic noir about a poisoned accountant searching for his own killer.

Frank Bigelow is an accountant living on borrowed time. Someone has slipped luminous toxin into his bourbon and now he has just a few days to solve his own murder. D.O.A. is over-acted, over-scripted and under-appreciated. An absolute delight!
