The Penalty Reviews

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Demonstrates the wonder and value of pre-digital moviemmaking: For all intents and purposes, Chaney *is* a legless man in 'The Penalty,' and the film is a documentary record of this impersonation.

Famous scene of Chaney straightening twisted legs is real plus.

| Original Score: 4/5

Somewhat interesting for historical reasons and for Chaney's memorable performance.

Blunt Review

The Penalty is by far one of the greatest unsung achievements of über-legend Lon Chaney

| Original Score: 4/4

Goatdog's Movies

The reason the film still works instead of surviving merely as a somewhat hysterical anti-communist message film is Lon Chaney's performance.
