  1. Arijan's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    A bit overrated. The story itself is a wee bit unbelievable--an editor hiring a reporter without basic credibility or references.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    Un étonnant Kirk Douglas, dans un rôle odieux au possible, et un conséquent classique du cinéma ! www.cinefiches.com

  9. DenoResandono's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    An excellent satire from Billy Wilder to the dirty side of journalism. Chuck Tatum is a potrait of human who would do anything to get what he want, one way or another. He didn't care his work is disgraceful, vile, or dirty and didn't care about other people's feeling. Kirk Douglas succeed to deliver a "SUPER-SAIYAN ACTING" performance in this movie. ABSOLUTELY CLASSIC!

  10. MS1915's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    Kirk Douglas' performance is fierce in this brave social commentary-noir twist. Wilder manages to take this ordinarily mundane tale and turn it into a twisted plot full of great moments. It's written, directed, and performed with great bravado.

  11. First Lady Dré's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    and not much has changed sadly

  12. Thomas Dods's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    So happy that Roger Ebert recommended this film. Really great satire on tabloid press and the best Kirk Douglas performance.

  14. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    'Ace In The Hole' is a scorching criticism of the media, its ability to turn any given situation into a circus, its complete disregard for humanity and its internals who are hungry for a break and will cross and boundary to get it. Although some view it as heavy handed, this film is a brutally raw look at only the most severe of given situations, which is actually based on true events. A lighter handed scenario...↓

  15. jonijtr's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    Chuck Tatum is one of the most interesting, yet overlooked character in cinema history, imho

  16. smndvdcl's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    Ethics vs. circulation remains one of the key tensions in reporting and journalism. Kirk Douglas epitomizes the vulture-like, opportunistic glee of a hard-on-his-luck reporter, who finds a potential tragedy worthy of a front page spread. This paradoxically counts as a good day at the office. In a world where bad news for the world, is good news for the news industry, is as universal today as it was in the 1950s.

  17. Jake.Durston's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    "I met a lot of hard-boiled eggs in my life, but you - you're twenty minutes."

  18. SpacePirate's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    A great portrait of how screwed up humans can be. Another Wilder triumph

  19. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

  20. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    Sobre el canibalismo periodístico. Un reportero amarillista, un cínico aunque no perverso. "El gran carnaval" retrata también a una masa que hace caso a dicha dinámica del encantamiento. Fascinante esa reflexión sobre la diferencia de ver sufrir a un grupo y a una persona en solitario. Son las ironías del razonamiento humano. Como el Cuarto Poder cala en la conciencia social, a unos por morbo a otros por caridad.

  21. Blumes's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    The standard Wilder special that comes off a bit heavy-handed. But a milestone, nonetheless.

    9/10, my review: http://wp.me/p1eXom-1Yj

  24. AKFilmFan's rating of the film Ace in the Hole

    The cinematic equivalent of a middle-finger to the media & the audience, Wilder's follow-up to the success of Sunset Blvd. is a scathing film and an unsurprising flop when released. Douglas is, to quote another media-center classic, a cookie full of arsenic. He's charming and likable in the cave but ruthless and determined outside of it. This film will be relevant even after the last newspapers are printed.
