Audience Reviews for Border Incident

½

From a story standpoint this is not noir, but it sure as hell looks like it. Ricardo Montalban and George Murphy go undercover to stop an illegal alien ring. Mann's direction is fantastic and is the perfect setup to the westerns he'd later make. Border Incident is pretty violent (the tractor scene alone was pretty frightening--and I've seen The Terminal!!) by even today's standards. My only concern is with the film's social and political relevance that a remake can't be too far behind.
