I could see how this was probably better as a TV serial. Mostly fun, though. Wish someone would have come up with an alternative to all those long literally monotonous scenes of the Daleks spouting robotic exposition, for sure.
The first half of this flick, with Robert Ryan as a near-maniacal city cop, really does the trick. But once he gets sent out to the sticks to solve a murder and falls in love with blind Ida Lupino... well, the movie kinda starts to suck and doesn't really stop.
Badass Shaw brothers flick.
