Yes, I am not a huge fan of old, "classic"-type movies, especially ones that are even the slightest bit a part of our beloved genre. Sure, DEATH KISS does have a relaxing nostalgic quality, but that's hardly enough to make me want to sit through it again. First off, the dialogue is laughable with a bunch of lame one-liners. The fact that some of the flick's edits were off, which led to a few scenes that jumped sporadically, didn't help either.
Also, the story itself was pretty silly as well. All the cops in the movie were made to look like complete dummies that had no idea how to properly piece together bits of evidence. Yet "Mr. Drew", the mystery novelist, was able to brilliantly discover all the proper pieces of the puzzle, while slyly inserting little jabs of mockery at the cops the whole time. This just didn't make logical sense.
Maybe I'm being too hard on DEATH KISS because it was made for a 1930's audience, but am I supposed to believe that back then all cops were idiots and only suave writers could solve crimes of murder? I hope not. And if this was to be taken as a serious mystery film, then I'm crying foul.
