News & Interviews for The Enforcer
Critic Reviews for The Enforcer
Vivid film noir, with many images that recall other Raoul Walsh thrillers.
Fine latter day Bogie (1950), and the title says it all.
A história bem construída e as boas atuações são o ponto forte deste noir, que se inspirou em fatos reais e foi um dos primeiros filmes a abordar o universo dos assassinos profissionais - e Bogart, mesmo no piloto automático, é sempre interessante.
Audience Reviews for The Enforcer
Minor crime caper. In his last Warners movie Bogart is excellent as always but the film is average in all other aspects
When a hoodlum staggers into a police station and confesses to the murder of his girlfriend, it sets in motion a chain of events which leads to D.A. Humphrey Bogart following a series of clues and bodies uncovering a group of ruthless contract killers. All the elements of film noir are in place, including gritty violence in darkened streets and tough, uncompromising characters. The structure is a little episodic, most of the story being told in flashback, and it would've benefited from giving more screen time to Bogie himself, but it's still a tautly directed and well shot minor classic of the detective genre.
