July 22, 2008
Fritz Lang, a master at getting the most out of mystery, intrigue and melodrama, in his direction apparently didn't have his way from beginning to end on Ministry of Fear.
May 24, 2003
On paper Lang was the ideal Greene director, but he's let down a mite by a screenplay which fails to do justice to the writer's favourite entertainment.

Fritz Lang turns this into a creepily effective work, full of bravura set pieces and subtle suggestions.

Adept at using cinema for art and entertainment since his early career, Lang treats this Graham Greene "entertainment" in modest, yet effective fashion.

This is a wonderfully atmospheric, almost expressionistic thriller, packed with memorable moments.
October 9, 2001
Has an exciting plot and is properly atmospheric despite its cheap studio sets.

This is not Lang's best film of the era, or even his most interesting portrait of paranoia and malevolent forces, but it is a lively thriller with unexpected turns.

Visually brilliant masterpiece.
January 31, 2011
It's certainly fitting that after filling his German years with ballsy, predictive masterpieces about Nazi rule-by-fear, Fritz Lang would finally make a film that directly involves Nazis.

Really good Fritz Lang noir that's never gotten its due

March 7, 2013
It's not top-shelf Fritz Lang, nor is it top-level Graham Greene, but as an exercise in World War II intrigue with a smidgen of film noir thrown in, Ministry of Fear gets the job done.

The film as a whole doesn't really stick with you, but isolated moments and images do

Plant yourself well in a firm seat and keep your over-coat on when you go to see this thriller, for it dumps you and douses you fast.
