Audience Reviews for Black Tuesday

Tight little prison break/hostage drama flick, kind of similar to The Desperate Hours and the like. Nothing too unusual here, but it flows very well and keeps you entertained, and it explores some interesting moral ground. Best of all is Edward G. Robinson's gleefully ruthless performance. The cinematography seemed nice, but it was difficult to judge with such a rotten print. If a restoration ever came out, I'd buy it.
