Critic Reviews for Hue and Cry

All Critics (4)

Sure to be enjoyed by those who grew up reading the likes of The Hardy Boys, Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators, and (over yonder in Europe) The Famous Five.

a classic that stands alone, a London landmark with laughs that takes us back to a more rough and tumble time, and does it with a style that would be admired and copied for generations to come

...the movie never goes too long without giving you something shiny to look at.

This is quite definitely a film out of the ordinary. The story is well constructed, the continuity good and the interest sustained.
