... Kazan avoids the usual theatrics as Andrews, who loosens up a little under Kazan's direction, methodically works his way through his case with a modesty rare even in today's spate of TV legal dramas. It's more film gray than noir...
November 28, 2015
Dull, vague retelling of true crime benefits from good cast and location shooting.
April 26, 2011
Though not one of Kazan's best films, Boomerang is perfectly watchable.

The best work is done against the grain of Louis de Rochemont's newsreel tidiness
November 1, 2007
Kazan shot most of the film on location, using high-contrast cinematography and an extremely mobile camera to create a palpable sense of urgency.

November 1, 2007
Gripping, real-life melodrama, told in semi-documentary style.
June 24, 2006
The unemphatic presentation of details, the use of locations, and strong performances from a largely non-professional supporting cast, lend the film authenticity and power.
March 25, 2006
Movie-makers should positively remember that a public story is a public trust.

The performances, especially by Andrews, are spot on.
January 1, 2000
Elia Kazan, as an afterthought, comments he wished he played up the corruption part of the story in more detail.

This 1947 film is limited in scope and feeling, but the superficial dramatics work well enough.
