Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Bogart, as retired mobster turned bigtime gambler, is easy to take."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"An excellent Warner Brothers actioner from 1942."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Bogart is great in this comedy thriller, which was made during WWII and was much ahead of its time in narrative and tone."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A patriotic Runyonesque spy spoof."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"In spite of its slap-bang construction and its hour-and-three-quarters length, the picture does move with precision and steadily maintained suspense."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Bogart is on decent enough form and the usual suspects, including Conrad Veidt and Peter Lorre, lurk in the shadows as they often did in these vehicles."
‑ Adrian Turner, Radio Times
"Boisterous Warner Bros. action comedy about Nazis in Manhattan"
‑ Daniel Eagan, Film Journal International
"Strong acting from a superb cast make it more than watchable, though both propaganda and direction are less than inspired."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Often-underrated director Vincent Sherman demonstrates a fine feel for the ambiance of 1940s New York, with plenty of machine-gun dialogue to spice up the proceedings."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Enjoyable WWII propaganda made by great cast and slick direction"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
