THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS (1946)
THE BEAST WITH FIVE FINGERS goes nowhere. The story takes too long to get moving and thenonce it does you're like "That's it?" and that ending! The final act drags on and on for so long that you're just begging the movie to end and once it finally does...there's a joke ending!!! It's like the filmmakers had zero faith in their product so they just slapped on a goofy ending as an apology or something. I don't know.
I like Peter Lorre and I had hopes that TBWFF was going to be like 1935's MAD LOVE, but nah it was boring through and through. I've seen commercials with a more compelling story. Skip it.
