10-Second Film Reviews #18

More indulgent than chocolate and with only twice the fat; it's my 10-second film reviews!

Movies I've seen this past week, along with my Netflix ratings (out of five stars):

Criss Cross: An adequate film noir. Burt Lancaster has some moments, but the plodding story and strange staging constantly kill momentum. The lighting and settings are adequate but not engrossing. Much of the time passes by with dialogue that's not particularly sharp or emotionally stirring. The last third of the story -- the action sequence -- is exhilarating, although it's mired by a somewhat dull ending. (***)
