Parallax View

Roger Corman's rat-tat-tat helming is one of the strengths of this crime flick ... What damages the picture are the performances by the two top-billed stars, Jason Robards and George Segal.

Audience Reviews for The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

Corman fans should really see this one, it's very different from his other films, it's like a biographical/historical account of the St. Valentines Day Massacre events, which not many people know much about these days. I learned a lot from it, and it's entertaining too.

Super Reviewer

Concise, efective and entertaining depiction of the notorious bloodshed unleashed by Capone and Moran in 1920s Chicago. Inherits the narrative vigor and rhythm of urgency of the classic gangster flicks.
