Review

God awful B-Movie acting, at times shoddy direction (actors looking off screen in different directions that are meant to be looking at the same thing. This happens in the boxing gym.) and a low budget compared to say a Bogey movie of the same period.

Despite this Kiss Me Deadly has a certain pulp charm and the way it’s shot was most certainly ahead of it’s time compared to say a Bogey movie of the same period.

Fine Noir for the connoisseur.
