Movie Review: The Third Man

Old movie (think black and white), but it actually had a really cool plot with a lot of twists and a really cool main character. Most definately a film noir. I'm happy I saw it, and I really like how it strayed away from sentimentality whenever it could.

My favorite scene was probably the absurdly long chase scene at the end when the main bad character (Harry) is running away in the sewers and essentially avoiding everyone. Sick ending to that scene too. (What, did you think I was going to give it away? No way, Jose, watch the movie for yourself!)

The black and white took away from it as did the main female lead, who was kind of boring. That's why it gets:

3/4 stars
