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

Kazan shot most of the film on location, using high-contrast cinematography and an extremely mobile camera to create a palpable sense of urgency.

Gripping, real-life melodrama, told in semi-documentary style.

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

Dull, vague retelling of true crime benefits from good cast and location shooting.
