Sabotage (1936) - an early Alfred Hitchcock movie

Some people rave about this movie, but I saw it recently and... well, though some of Hitchcock's ideas were definitely beyond the capabilities of the filming technology of the time, it has to be said that the film really lacks much dramatic element at all. The storyline is weak, the dialogue frequently stilted or unrealistic, and the characters largely uninteresting or unsympathetic. It didn't help that the print hadn't been remastered very well, but it just didn't seem to have much going for it at all.
