Critic Reviews for Blood Alley
Lesser seen Duke Wayne, here teamed with Lauren Bacall in international actioner.
Camouflaged as action-adventure, this is one of John Wayne's most propagadistic movies, in which he rescues an entire village from the ill of Communism.
Audience Reviews for Blood Alley
No need for an inflated, descriptive review here. This is a solid, albeit ignored John Wayne film that was bashed by the big critics. Just watch and enjoy.
not nearly as patronizing to women/Chinese people as expected (though certainly still insulting). a lot of fun and good story
A really cool movie and John Wayne doing what he does best, killing commies and seducing Lauren Bacall. The on location look to it really sells it though, it doesn't feel like just a generic studio movie, it looks like they're in China. It's interesting that John Wayne co-directed this at such an early time to, it's a great job for a first movie or a seasoned director. All around it's just a fun semi-war movie with some interesting early views on communism.
