mjgildea's rating of the film The Big Knife

The Big Knife is full of entertaining performances and vibrant language which justify a couple hours of your time. Unfortunately its not entirely satisfying and there's not exactly an abundance of likable characters around. It also felt a bit claustrophobic, but what do you want from a movie adapted from a play?
