Audience Reviews for A Bullet for Joey


Edward G. Robinson, George Raft and Audrey Totter are all a little past their prime in this underwhelming film noir from director Lewis Allen. A Bullet for Joey methodically dots all the i's and crosses all the t's while trying far too hard to be what it already is.

Tight little crime drama that benefits mightily from Edward G. Robinson's customary great performance. Well paced with Raft less wooden than usual and Audrey Totter a very welcome presence although underused.
