  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    SPOILER: Gritty & nerve-wracking. The script by blacklisted writer Abraham Polonsky (who used a "front" for this film) is downright disturbing from the first line (picking up an African-American child, Ryan tells her: "You little pickaninny. You're gonna get yourself killed flyin like that.") to the last (referring to the two indiscernibly charred bodies, one Black, the other white: "Which is which? Take your pick.")

  3. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    Everyone involved did a great job. The long waiting sequence before the heist has a poetic/realist quality, that is very unusual for a Hollywood film of that time...New York, end of the fifties: the look, the music - nothing has ever been so cool...

  4. Aardsy's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    A good noir, but not quite next level.

  5. Keisuke Kawasaki's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    What a masterpiece. Quite inventive, creative and beautifully artistic. One of the best films from Robert Wise.

  6. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    What a terrific crime drama. Robert Ryan is perfectly cast as Slater and Harry Belafonte, Ed Begly, Shelley Winters and Gloria Grahame are all great. Loved the musical score by John Lewis too.

  7. Christofer Pierson's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    Didn't age well. The parts (esp. Ryan, Belafonte, Winters, Grahame, the cinematographty) are greater than the whole. Close to great but no cigar.

  8. Dave's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    Another solid effort from Wise. At times it feels like it might reach the level of other great heist noirs like The Killing or The Asphalt Jungle, but it never quite gets there. Even so, it's a beautifully shot film and also very good. And the social implications of the film are important when putting it in historical context as well.

  9. Hidden Behind the Screen's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    Robert Wise has been impressing me more and more, first with The Set Up and now with this. Belafonte was fantastic, definitely gonna look for more from him.

  10. StellaWasaDiver's rating of the film Odds Against Tomorrow

    The anti-racism message is a bit obvious, though for a 1959 society (and today, even) that was probably a good thing. John Lewis' jazzy score is at times classy and suspenseful, similar to what Miles Davis did for Elevator to the Gallows around this time. Overall a decent heist/desperate men film.
