4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but NOT Noir..
A reasonable collection of old Brit Crime movies that is well worth the very reasonable price - as long as you dont expect TOO much- and certainly don't expect too much noir.
You should expect a lot - just look at the cast lists.. Laurence Olivier. Vivian Leigh, Dirk Bogard..But somehow they all fail to rise above 'enjoyable'
'Sapphire', which at the time would...

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but NOT Noir.., 28 Dec 2012

This review is from: Great British Movies - Film Noir [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
A reasonable collection of old Brit Crime movies that is well worth the very reasonable price - as long as you dont expect TOO much- and certainly don't expect too much noir.
You should expect a lot - just look at the cast lists.. Laurence Olivier. Vivian Leigh, Dirk Bogard..But somehow they all fail to rise above 'enjoyable'
'Sapphire', which at the time would have been ground breaking and dangerous now comes over as preachy and even a little patronising.
'Turn the key softly' is social drama, not even really crime, but has tence moments that has you worried about the lead characters
'Hunted' magnificently avoids sickly sentimentality (just) despite having cute kiddie in danger
'21 days' is simular to 'Key' in making you sympathetic to the underdog struggling to escape a criminal mistake
'Too long at the fair' is the best, having genuine tension, but is more a thriller.
Go on, if you like old Brit B&W, treat yourself, it's a good buy, and I think you will enjoy it, but don't buy it as a noir collection, because it isn't

This review is from: Great British Movies - Film Noir [DVD] [1940] (DVD)
There's a really excellent selection of films here....just the ticket for sitting back with your partner, turn the lights down low, have a glass of wine close at hand, relax and enjoy mysteries and thrills without all the 'over the top' gimmicks of modern entertainment......and very reasonably priced!

who is 80 and he loved a lot of these films, he said he'd never seen a few of them which is amazing in itself as he's seen billions of films!

I thoroughly enjoyed these films, three of them in particular. This set is well worth getting if you work out the cost of buying the films individually.
