Saboteur Reviews

Top Critic
October 25, 2017
Saboteur's ingredients are not uncommon, but Master Hitchcock deals them out in a sinister manner that makes them appear so.

Wonderfully creative spy thriller, with strong point of view.

Soldiers on patrol behind cafeteria workers, Fascist-sympathizing terrorists deeply embedded in small towns and big cities, and the chilling crackle of hectic radio warnings set a tone of ambient menace.

This political thriller, Hitchcock's contribution to American propaganda during WWII, is not one of the master's top films.

...even the most avid Hitchcock fan will have a tough time embracing the film.

Of course Saboteur is well directed, though it's rather like visiting an art museum's 'early works' exhibit of an artist before he became the Master of his form.

To put it mildly, Mr. Hitchcock and his writers have really let themselves go. Melodramatic action is their forte, but they scoff at speed limits this trip.

Propagandistic reworking of The 39 Steps still works
August 7, 2002
Top-notch espionage thriller with a jaw-dropping finale atop the Statue of Liberty.
March 22, 2001
A thrilling movie that -- while not among the top of handful of his films -- still strikes audiences as tense and highly entertaining many decades after its release.
January 1, 2000
A solid action thriller directed by Alfred Hitchcock, but it has many plot flaws and suffers from poor pacing.
January 1, 2000
The movie has its enjoyable, even humorous moments, but the brooding sense of danger and fear so prominent in his other films, are more noticeably absent.
