There is vivid action, nice human touches and some bizarre moments. Jack Palance gives a sharp performance.
A classy thriller, much less laden with significance than most Kazan movies.
Superbly made look at scientists battling a contagious disease, with Widmark outstanding lead.
A taut thriller with a poignant message, Panic in the Streets, which won the Oscar for Motion Picture Story, is well directed by Kazan and well acted by Richard Widmark, Jack Palance, Zero Mostell (just before he was blacklisted) and others.

Not panic enough to entertain.
With such a great cast this could have been an great classic, but the movie has it's boring slow scenes, other than that I liked it. The story is exciting and the actors do their best.
