Maltese Falcon (1941) – Worst of the Worst Noir

by Milos Itic on February 17, 2011

Don’t Watch it!

A priceless detective who goes around insulting women takes on a case that involves him with three stupid criminals, and their quest for a priceless statuette. There is no plot, there is no real story. Everyone pull out thMaltese Falconey guns and pushing their hands to take most stupid motive of all time in cinema history¬† “statuette”.

First of all, Noir is my genre. I like famous actor Hemphrey Bogart, and like some of his movies like “The Big Sleep”, “In a lonely place” and even “Casablanca”. But this film go out of every limit, and maybe the most overrated movie ever. The plot is terrible and many events may insult the intelligence of a ten year old. Atmosphere, the most crucial element of Noir genre is very bad. The original movie filmed in 1931 is a much better movie.

Absolutely pathetic, zero character profiles, ludicrous and childish plot, random killings, it’s almost impossible to believe anything that’s going on in this horrible movie and simple this is¬† a poor example of the genre.

Boring! Pathetic! Overrated! Worst Noir ever (with To have and Have not)! Stupid! Stay, Stay away!

“This isn’t just awful. It is possibly the worst film I’ve ever seen”

I couldn’t agree with you anymore. Worst $6 I have ever spent. I’m 29 and seen tons of flicks and I just spent over hundred bucks on older movies from eBay thinking I was getting the most amazing fantastic incredible cinematic experience ever put on a DVD. Not so much, rosemary’s baby, predictable and dragged out, north by northwest was alright, dogday afternoon, not horrible. I hope I have better luck with in the heat of the night, vertigo, rear window, 12 angry men, and the good the bad and the ugly, which perfectly sums up my purchases. If you have any recommendations on what you think I may like, feel free.
