Crime • R • 1997 • 2 hr 18 min
This dense and sprawling masterpiece summarizes the infamous police force of the 1950s well. Excellent cast with sharp writing.
Thrilling watch with compelling characters! Takes you to all the places you want to go in the best ways possible!
A fast paced and engrossing film depicting the glamour and corruption, that must have come with being an L.A. cop in the 50s.
A great neo noir movie! Snappy dialogue, action, and great characters. It’ll keep you guessing!
This is the definition of film noir. Great direction, acting, and screenplay. A truly underrated gem that has been forgotten.
Dismissed when released as a boring cop show. Watched in 2021 and realised excellent performances with great plot of Hollywood corruption.
Spacey, Pearce and Crowe shine in this superb fast paced edgy thriller.
Haven’t seen in a while so I kinda forget what happens but I remember having fun the whole time

Amazing story, all actors are at their best in,what is for most of them, their best movie. Crowe and Pearce have never bettered this
