Critic Reviews for The Gun Runners

All Critics (3)

It's a stock thriller premise brought to life with clever screenwriting, deftly turned characters, a terrific supporting cast and delightfully sexy rapport and physical intimacy between [Audie] Murphy and Patricia Owen

Siegel's muscular action takes over and saves the day.

Audience Reviews for The Gun Runners


Neither the classic that To Have and Have Not was nor as good as The Breaking Point with John Garfield and Patricia Neal this is still a well made and decently acted version of the Hemingway story.
