Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Double Indemnity is the season's nattiest, nastiest, most satisfying melodrama.
Fresh: MacMurray has seldom given a better performance. It is somewhat different from his usually light roles, but is always plausible and played with considerable restraint.
Fresh: The film is a brilliant collision of evil and the mundane, and one of the reasons viewers respond to it so well is that it makes the mundane seem a little sexier in the resulting debris.
Fresh: This expert night of the Hollywood soul is such a genre axiom it practically scans like a mid-'40s shopper's catalogue for noiristes ...
LITERALLY SUSPENSE,perhaps one of the most suspensful i have seen. this movie is SO entertaining from start to finish,i LOVED it. the best part is the part on the train. watch this movie it is VERY VERY good
solid, not great
Solid noir film, but I just didn't like the casting. Bogart and and any number of leading ladies of the time would have made this one phenomenal. MacMurray just wasn't believable, at least to me.
One of the all time greats
The Happy Banker!!!
