Critic Reviews for Thunder Bay

All Critics (2)

Sets up fascinating tensions between people and ways of looking at the world, but ultimately backs away from any kind of meaningful examination of them.

There's not many directors other than Anthony Mann who could have made the rival wildcatters and shrimpers become so lovey-dovey.
