Audience Reviews for 99 River Street
Sep 23, 2012"99 River Street" isn't anything to write home about (and please forgive me for using that phrase), but it more than passes the time, which I'm sure is the reason why it was made in the first place. Of course, it's unlikely that you'll remember anything about it once it's over, but John Payne provides a formidable hero and he ventures through a plot that includes a myriad of twists; two of which really got me. "99 River Street" is forgettable but enjoyable entertainment, and that's sometimes the best kind.
Feb 17, 2011Back when drama and suspense made a movie and not sex and swearing like the American movies of today. Made in 1953 this movie stands out there as it is full of drama and suspense. A fighter is just seconds away from becoming the world champion but gets hit above the eye in a fight and with that his dreams and fight days are over, his wife finds another man and his troubles begin. He's just a cap driver now and she wants more, so she helps a thug steal some diamonds and that too goes wrong, Movie is full of suspense and has a full cast of fifties stars who made a lot of different TV series appearances. A Old B&W that gets 4 stars
Aug 09, 2009a terrific overlooked noir, likely the best film of director phil karlson's career. john payne plays a washed up fighter who's constantly reliving his lost shot at the title, struggling as a cabdriver with a dissatisfied wife. what is it with boxers and noir? needless to say, he gets mixed up in a dangerous game, giving him one last shot at redemption. i don't wanna give too much away. everyone is great here, especially evelyn keyes as a standup dame trying to help him out of the jam. check it outStella D Super Reviewer
