A masterpiece that pinpoints the sublime in Fuller's sensationalism and earns every inch of its widescreen real estate.

Novelty of scene and a warm, believable performance by Japanese star Shirley Yamaguchi are two of the better values in the production.

A lean, hard-boiled, sharp detective thriller with just a light touch of Madame Butterfly.

House of Bamboo offers all Fuller's key themes and motifs in a characteristic thriller form: dual identities, divided loyalties, racial tensions, life (and cinema) as war.

One of Samuel Fuller's best, a tough, sometimes nasty, but always exciting 1955 effort in 'Scope and color that unites three of his favorite topics: military comradeship, the underworld, and the Far East.
