Critic Reviews for On Dangerous Ground
An exalted modulation from harsh to lyrical and back, the culmination of Nicholas Ray's Borzagean side
What succeeds in On Dangerous Ground is the raw emotionalism that bleeds out from the screen, unmatched in any of Ray's other films.
Nicholas Ray's classic noir starring Ryan and Lupino.
Audience Reviews for On Dangerous Ground
This film is an amazing work of art. This film was based on the book Mad with Much Heart by Gerald Butler. The cinematography was beautiful. I loved the flow of the story. The telling of a harden cop who falls for an independent blind girl while searching for her brother was astonishing. It's film noir at it's best. www.what-to-watch.com
Atmospheric noir mood piece with excellent work by greats Robert Ryan and Ida Lupino with an evocative score by Bernard Hermann, reportedly his favorite of all his work.
Really interesting Noir from Nicholas Ray. It's sort of the Dusk till Dawn of it's day. It's a picture of two distinct halves. The first a police film. The second a chase. It's easy to see why this film, with it's early use of hand held camera was an inspiration for the French new wave. As Godard said "Nicholas Ray is cinema"
