Steven Gaydos of Variety wrote that the film features "first-rate performances" but has "a routine, by-the-numbers plot".[1] Stephen Holden of The New York Times wrote, "Although a standard genre movie with film-noir overtones, it nevertheless has a conviction that is missing in many of its slicker Hollywood forerunners."[2]
