Possibly one of the best mystery detective films ever made The Maltese Falcon is a film with an incredible plot and even better acting. The reason this film stands the test of time is because the plot is incredibly well written but that’s no surprise since Dashiell Hammett wrote the book that this movie is based on. A star studded cast of characters including Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, and Sydney Greenstreet pulls the viewer in the world of the detective and his story. If you like classic detective movies then look no further. Also if you enjoyed Casablanca then I would definitely watch this film.
Bottom Line (Warning Contains Spoilers)
Honestly I really don’t have much to say about this film. It speaks for itself. From start to finish the film bleeds film noir and is a shinning example of what it should be. From storing the Maltese Falcon in an ice box to keep it hidden, to the classic Bogart tough guy scenes. This is how a film should be made and a must own.
