John Huston directeds this enjoyable WWII feature, which reunites the Maltese Falcon stars, Bogart, Mary Astor, and Sydney Greenstreet.
Fine John Huston wartime flick, bolstered by Bogart.
Though a failure for Huston and Bogart compared to it's predecessor (The Maltese Falcon), this political thriller still entertains. Features great performances from Bogart and Greenstreet.
A product of it's time, Across the Pacific was made more for the war effort than for it's cinematic merits. If the cast seems vaguely familiar it's because many of them, including director John Huston, worked together on The Maltese Falcon just the year before. This one is minor league compared to it's predecessor, but it's still replete with Mary Astor's charm and Humphrey Bogart's machismo and that alone makes it worth watching.
bogey and greenstreet work well together once again in this excellent tale of intrigue. the twists are great and the story is told well in what is an underrated classic helmed by the great john huston.
Reteaming of the three major players of the Maltese Falcon yields iffy results, the acting is good of course but the story is somewhat lackluster and uninvolving. An average effort especially from someone like Huston.
