What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Five Came Back

    The sole interesting point here is the screenplay. When there's no law anymore, people, after having listened to the older (parental authority), first turn to the pilot who's the authority representative. Then it's the law of the gun and finally they turn to a moral authority who's represented by a Latin anarchist. Gee! Hollywood was really something in those days. But already forgotten, I'm afraid.
