The First Deadly Sin was Frank Sinatra's final starring movie vehicle. Based on a novel by Lawrence Sanders, it casts Sinatra as Edward Delaney, a big-city detective on the verge of retirement. Beset with profound personal problems--including a gravely ill wife (Faye Dunaway)--Delaney nonetheless tackles the case of an axe murderer who seemingly strikes at random. Be on the lookout for an unbilled Bruce Willis. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Forgettable Sinatra vehicle, beneath the Chairman's talents."
‑ Steve Crum, Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers
"A atenção com os detalhes e a preocupação com o realismo, ao lado da atuação sóbria de Sinatra, colocam o filme acima de outros exemplares do gênero (mesmo trazendo um assassino desinteressante)."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The First Deadly Sin reveals just how crucial citizens are in the solution to a crime."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
