Critic Reviews for Fire Down Below

All Critics (2)

Rita Hayworth returns after three years' absence from the screen and proves that she has lost none of her knack at presenting a performance as inept, wooden and unintentionally farcical as anything she ever did in the past

November 21, 2019 | Full Review…

The film gets right the Caribbean atmosphere (filmed in Trinidad) but nearly drowns over its turgid melodramatics and how perfunctory it's all played out.
