Turgid, talky, tedious remake of High Sierra (1941), with Jack Palance a poor substitute for Humphrey Bogart.

Scarcely more inspired than its title.
(Monthly Film Bulletin)
It is an insult to the intelligence to pull this old mythological hero out of the archives and set him on a mountaintop again.
(New York Times)
