there were possibilities with "dark passage," the subjective camerawork at the beginning gave the film a slightly added dimension and the on-screen chemistry between humphrey bogart and lauran bacall is as good as ever.
sadly though, this film suffers from an implausible story, a thin narrative(like bogart's thin hair) and the finale is disappointing. the reasons why i think this is, is due to the ending feeling rushed and underdeveloped. there was no big build-up or anything like it. also, there could have been a bit more action and incident.
a great pity.
