BLAST OF SILENCE (1961)

Mildly interesting low budget film noir that tells the tale of a 2nd-rate hit man from the time he's given his orders all the way to when he gets paid. Everything is included from him buying the gun to stalking his prey. Good idea for a movie and I did enjoy it a little bit, but the problem I had is it's too goddamn long. Yea, it's only 77 minutes long, but there's only enough action and drama for 50 minutes max.

If you like low-budget noirs then I guess it's worth a rent, but definitely not a buy.
