Captain Scarface (1953)



Reviews and Comments

Mechanical, detached espionage tale about an attempt to destroy the Panama Canal. The film never gets inside any of the heads of the characters, so there's no reason to care about them. Worse still, the plot is so fraught with logical lapses that attempting reason through any part of it is impossible. A weak screenplay is bad enough, but an incompetent one like this is torturous.
