Critic Reviews for Dead Reckoning
A bleak crime melodrama that is too complexly plotted for it own good.
Audience Reviews for Dead Reckoning
Brilliant, pessimistic, enchanting and fascinating tone, noir at its best. as always, Bogart rocks in his antiheroism.
A good cast, but an average story, makes for an okay movie.
Another Humphrey Bogart Film that is over the top. Returning home from World War II, Captain "Rip" Murdock (Bogart) and Sergeant Johnny Drake are due for the Congressional Medal of Honor and Distinguished Service Cross. Johnny Doesn't want not part of it and bolts from the train, only later to be found dead. Johnny's lover is played by Lizabeth Scott who everyone falls in love with. She?s not a Becall but she?s as pretty as any female from the after WWII Time Frame. 4 1/2 stars
