Two Line Reviews - #223

Movie: The Manchurian Candidate (1962)

Plot: An US Sergeant korean war hero returns to his motherland & soon after that, members in his patrol unit get similar dreams on him having killed two of their men. But the respect they have for him make the dream look all the more unrealistic and when the Major of the patrol prepares himself to find the truth, a huge suspense gets revealed.

  • This film has an unusual story that keeps one interested from the start. The screenplay complements that and makes it a superb classic.
  • The roles of Sgt. Raymond Shaw, his mother and Major Ben are captivating.
  • The 5 second climax is an absolute stunner!
An Unusual & very interesting film!
