Crossfire is an unusually good and honest movie and may -- I hope, will - prove a very useful one.

Sutil como um touro numa loja de porcelana, soa implausível em sua trama e tolo na maneira com que prega o óbvio. Com isso, suas válidas intenções morais se tornam apenas infantis.

Producer Dore Schary, in association with Adrian Scott, has pulled no punches.

While the film remains a respectable thriller, only Ryan's crafty, quietly deranged performance lifts it out of the ordinary.

This ultra-low-budget thriller did what all great B movies do: it broached a subject that 'respectable' movies wouldn't touch.

Dealing with racial bigotry, this tense thriller combines a message drama with the stylistics of film noir, resulting in one of the best films of the 1940s, with top notch work from Robert Mitchum and Robert Ryan.

An intriguing combination of a common noir theme with the liberal-minded message picture.

It would have been a much better film if it weren't for the censor: there is absolutely no question about that.
