Film Review : Union Station (1950)

Netflix Instant Watch
IMDB Score : 6.8
RT Score : No score

I’ll be honest. I lost interest in this quick. This is not a great movie. It certainly isn’t bad but I just didn’t find the story all that interesting to stay 100 percent focused. Barry Fitzgerald was pretty great in this although he basically plays the same exact character he did in the fantastic NYC noir film “The Naked City”. The story focuses on a woman who spots a man packing heat on a train. The subsequent chase unveils that the man is working for a thug boss who has kidnapped the daughter of a very wealthy man. She also happens to be blind. Why? I have no idea. This is just the story. The rest of the film follows suit. The direction was bland and there just wasn’t anything unique happening. Sometimes I find myself saying…”Hey! This film is in black and white, it must be great!”. There are average films all over the place guys. This was one of them.
