Dueling Critics

thumbs-up

“One of Hitchcock’s most involving and tense films because the so-called Maguffin is a tangible person – a child of the protagonist. The adventure and stakes are taken to another level of intensity and intrigue, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable Hitchcock masterpiece. Enjoy.”
thumbs-up

“A rare lull in Hitchcock’s fine cannon. The plot never grabbed my attention and I was only excited by one scene. There are a couple of misplaced comic moments and the acting is average.”
