Audience Reviews for The House on 92nd Street


This is from the fox Film Noir Collection and is a semi documentary film, shows the FBI at work in those early days of the European conflict. Henry Hathaway, the director, focus on the work behind the scenes of a group of German spies, operating in New York and how the FBI is able to infiltrate the group. If your into Film Noir and ole school black and white you might enjoy it. I can only muster up 2 1/2 Stars on this one

Boring, confusing, I didn't get it. I usually like film noir, but I didn't like this movie.

AJ Verser

Super Reviewer

There's good noir and there's bad noir. This isn't good noir.
