  • Spencer Draper's rating of the film Tokyo Joe

    How, how is this any good? How does a lower grade picture have this much watchability? This is a different Bogie, his tough guy image yes but with a heavy dose of Dixon Steele. This alone makes for a good film but something in the simple plot development and tone makes it more. Maybe I just have a thing for plots with ex-GI's going back to Japan and encountering intense pain when digging up the ghosts of the past.
