Many of the scenes are truly exciting
16 October 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A sensational melodrama in three reels, dealing with modern life and taken against a great, partly-built dam or other engineering work. Its center of interest is the contractor's difficulty in getting on with the work. He is short of ready money and the villain, a millionaire, plots to keep him from borrowing on gilt-edged securities he owns. The contractor's daughter repulses the villain and the hero, his clerk, gets discharged for shielding her. This hero is made foreman, and the old foreman becomes a dramatic factor in the second reel by opposing him. The work is protected from the rioting workers by gattling guns (not wholly convincing as shown) and they are loaded with blank cartridges by the new foreman. The millionaire villain changes these for ball cartridges and this act is photographed by a motion picture camera man and, at the trial, his reel is brought to the jury and he real criminal is arrested, it is fairly well acted; the photography is clear; many of the scenes are truly exciting and it makes a passable offering. - The Moving Picture World, July 4, 1914
