Although I think they try too hard to shoe-horn in the whole Cold War/nuclear angle, but I love Ralph Meeker's dark anti-hero depiction of Mike Hammer - and the dames ain't half-bad either - as noir, it only half-way works for me, but it's worth watching just for a different take on an iconic character.

One of the more iconic noir films created, Kiss Me Deadly combines a slow burn plot with themes of Cold War paranoia and intrigue (unusual for an LA detective film.) The characters are appropriately off-the-wall and Ralph Meeker's Mike Hammer cooly chews the scenery in every chiroscoro scene. The film's ambiguous opening is one of the best openings of all noir or crime films, in my opinion.
