Critic Reviews for Blockade

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • On the surface it is a good, excitingly handled spy film. But underneath the narrative it presents an eloquent and brilliantly pictorialized plea against modern warfare.

  • Set against the Spanish Civil War, Blockade was one of Hollywood's first anti-fascist dramas, which back in 1938, was considered a bold act; director Dieterle's future career suffered because of the film's politics.

Audience Reviews for Blockade

  • Feb 13, 2013
    Proof that not all movies from the Hollywood Golden Age were classics. Over emphatic and artificial with an overwrought performance from Henry Fonda. Madeleine Carroll is beautiful but her part doesn't make a lot of sense.
