Variety Staff Variety | March 26, 2009

Novelty of scene and a warm, believable performance by Japanese star Shirley Yamaguchi are two of the better values in the production.

Bosley Crowther New York Times | March 25, 2006

A lean, hard-boiled, sharp detective thriller with just a light touch of Madame Butterfly.

Don Druker Chicago Reader | May 14, 2003

One of Samuel Fuller's best, a tough, sometimes nasty, but always exciting 1955 effort in 'Scope and color that unites three of his favorite topics: military comradeship, the underworld, and the Far East.
