4 out of 10 Rivetting thriller
Ken from Dublin, 21 Oct 2007
With superb performances from Rod Steiger as the racist chief of police and Sidney Poitier in the lead role. If you haven't seen it I thoroughly recommend it.

Kevin from Cork, 01 Mar 2008
A classic film, well deserving of its Oscar and it has aged well. Sidney Poitier and Rod Steiger are excellent.
