  • Allmovie wrote, "Uneasy Terms is a scrambled British attempt at American-style hard boil."[4]
  • Sky Movies wrote, "Peter Cheyney's detective Slim Callaghan has rarely translated well to the screen, But this Vernon Sewell-directed thriller is one of the better efforts, thanks largely to a quality cast that also includes Barry Jones, Joy Shelton and Paul Carpenter."[5]
