JonMB's rating of the film Bad Day at Black Rock

This film certainly has a good cast but I felt somewhat disappointed after watching it. I felt like I was watching theater. It felt ... well ... unnatural. The action scenes were not well done and some of the acting was over the top. If it wasn't Sturges with this cast I would have taken this one for a low budget film. Sturges directed some great films. This was not one of them. I expected more. Average.
