This was a hard watch. Lacks creativity, energy, and imagination. It’s poorly directed, unenthusiastically shot and, for the most part, awkwardly staged. The action sequences are ineffective and most hard-boiled lines don’t land. An unfortunate Chandler adaptation and a major disappointment. Murder My Sweet is for my money one of the 5 great classic film noirs. Great early Sly Stallone and Harry Dean Stanton.
