A fair production-line revenge thriller.
9 January 2020 | by CinemaSerfSee all my reviews

A rather predictable affair about a man convicted by court-martial of selling army supplies during the war. Once released, he sets out on a spree of revenge murders against those responsible for his incarceration and manages to kill five before a journalist and his girlfriend cotton on and try to save the final survivor from the same grisly fate. There is a twist towards the end, but anyone remotely interested in films of a sleuthing nature will probably have twigged to that much earlier in the film. Liam Redmond is quite good as the Inspector. Keep an eye our for Arthur "Capt. Mainwaring" Lowe, too...
