Movie Review by Barbie Q
January 30th, 2010

Not Really So Amazing

This truly disappointing Mystery/Thriller from 1948 certainly gives one the clear impression that all wealthy women are gullible, stupid bimbos who are easily taken in by smugly grinning charlatans with immaculate manners and pencil-thin moustaches.

Yes, I do realize that this film is from the 1940's where plot credibility was even less of a factor than it is now - But, all the same, The Amazing Mr. X's story is so utterly contrived and far-fetched at times that it quickly becomes a tedious bore and a literal insult to any "thinking" person's intelligence.

A filthy-rich, young widow, Christine Faber, thinks she hears the eerie voice of her dead husband calling out to her from the ocean waves. When she explores the beach she encounters a mysterious stranger named Alexis who seems to know more than he should about her past.

Soon enough Christine and her dizzy sister become entangled in this bogus Medium's fiendish web of deceit and extortion. And as quick as a wink, they find that their very lives are at risk.

This film contains some really terrible, fake "location" shots and some incredibly hokey-looking special effects.
