Movie Reviews

Image Entertainment presents another substandard release
tacks31 | San Francisco, CA | 02/03/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was so looking forward to watching this DVD. After finding this unknown film noir, I noticed it was issued by Image. Anyone familiar with their products knows by now that purchasing from Image is hit and miss in terms of quality. This one is clearly not remastered - or even restored in any way. In fact, the print is plagued in numerous spots from where the film print had broken and then was spliced together with a few damaged frames at each splice being removed. When oh when will Image have a consistant quality of product? This could have been a delighful purchase has been turned into a lesson not to buy any more DVDs from this company!"
Just Atrocious
J. Friedman | Tustin, California | 09/03/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Lawrence Tierney is one of my very favrotie performers, and even I couldn't watch this movie. The print is awful; the sound is worse; and it frequently skips right past some of the dialogue.
It's not a good movie to begin with, and doesn't really showcase Tierney's talent. It has no real plot, and you don't care about any of the characters except Tierney's long suffering mother, who winds up dying from his very presence, a little eerie in view of the fact that LT's real life mother committed suicide.
You've never seen any of the other performers (unless you're a 3 Stooges fan) or heard of any of the behind the scenes folk, and it's easy to see why.
This is not a B movie. It's firmly ensconced in the D- category, and yet it's spectacular in comparison to the DVD version of it. No features. No labeling of scenes. Scratchy, horrible print. Cover picture that doesn't even resemble the performers.
Cheap, cheap, cheap. They don't come any cheaper.
No more ALPHA videos for me.
Take the $6.98, and donate it to your favorite charity.
I'd suggest you watch my copy, but it wouldn't be worth the postage."
Great Film Noir - Dissapointing Release
Moviefanatic | Chicago, Il | 06/21/2006

"The movie itself is a wonderful film noir and Laurence Tierney was born to play this part. Image Entertainment's release, on the other hand, is a disgrace. They are consistently using very poor images of great movies and sell them at overblown prices. 'Too Late for Tears', is another example to prove this point. I highly recommend Dark Crimes 50 Movie Pack. It contains 50 public domain movies on 12 DVDs (Hoodlum included) for about $16-$17. You get decent quality recordings at an unbeatable price. Image DVDs are not worth spending money on."
