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.

A fast moving film.

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.
