Dark Passage isn't a particularly good film - there's a lot of disparate elements that never quite sew themselves together. It's a crazy patchwork made up of different pieces of other movies.

Bogart's Parry sure is a guy with plenty of trouble and Bacall provides intelligent and gutsy succour, but this competent and interesting thriller just never quite makes it to classic status.
July 12, 2011
The story is involving, the atmosphere is as starkly noir as anything Bogart participated in, and the dynamic between the leads is as conspicuous as ever.

One of the great San Francisco films.

Brilliantly atmospheric.
March 26, 2009
What starts out as a thriller switches en route into a sagging, psychological drama, but recovers in time to give out with the satisfying gory stuff.

A minor classic in the noir genre.

The film is almost stolen by bizarre performances by both Agnes Moorhead and Clifton Young.

The plot is a stretch even in the realm of classic crime melodrama and film noir, not that it's an issue when you have the chemistry of Bogie and Bacall and great use of San Francisco locations.
July 12, 2011
The structure and character sense of the David Goodis novel are intact, and a full-throttle supporting cast has a ball with meaty parts.
June 14, 2007
The plot has some admirable twists and turns and Agnes Moorehead, as the villainess, has three wonderfully showy scenes.
| Original Score: 4/5
