    Watched this one on Netflix Stream, a awesome movie about a kidnapping. Supposed to be on Long Island, Had towns Westhampton, Freeport, Riverview, gave the impression of NYC crime, whole film was actually made in California. This is awesome film noir at its best, a blind girl is kidnapped and a ransom must be made. Will keep you on the edge of your seat. 5 stars. 3-10-13

    requiring a big dose of suspension of disbelief from the get go but, that aside, a very good low budget thriller. nice pairing of young william holden and nancy olson in the same year they did 'sunset blvd'. funny to see barry fitzgerald as the police inspector threatening suspects and telling his men, 'make it look accidental'

    In the world of thrillers, "Union Station" is just about as routine as it gets. Its plot contains a handful of predictable scenes that lead to an expected conclusion and its characters exist for the sole purpose of moving the story from beginning to end. But as textbook as it is, "Union Station" is forgettable and unambitious in an enjoyable way. It's a good hour and twenty-something minutes of mindless escapism that never feels like a waste of time. It's well-paced and remarkably shot, and William Holden makes a formidable hero. "Union Station" doesn't have classic status, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth your time.

    Solid crime drama with excellent cast. Holden and Nancy Olson play well off each other and Lyle Bettger oozed slime like few others, on top of that there's Barry Fitzgerals as the wizened chief of police. Some of the procedures are a bit quaint now but taking into account when it was made an entertaining little programmer all in all.
