Bad Day at Black Rock
Thriller • NR • 1955 • 1 hr 21 min
A well written and acted suspense drama about buried secrets and anger.
I think this film is somewhat overhyped. Tracy is predictably good, but everyone else is pretty forgettable. The plot is pretty standard.
An interesting story, could’ve been so much more.
Tracy shows real men don't boast. They seek the truth and do what needs to be done. A slow burn movie about a desolate town & empty lives.
Some good action and a fun light story. Middle of the road dad movie.
It has elements of the western, film noir, and action films while building a level of tension more typical of a thriller. A masterpiece!
Compelling and entertaining, with a social message still sadly applicable.
