Movie Info

Across 110th Street is a violent urban thriller about a corrupt, older white cop (Anthony Quinn) and an honest, young African-American cop (Yaphet Kotto) chasing three robbers-cum-murderers who ran away with $300,000 that belonged to the Italian mob. The police must find them before the sadistic Mafia henchman Nick D'Salvio (Anthony Franciosa) reaches them first. The film has reached a cult status; the title song, performed by Bobby Womack, was later used in Jackie Brown, Quentin Tarantino's

[VIDEO] As exaggerated as the violence appears, it is in keeping with the social climate of the time. No punches are pulled, and rightly so.

One of the best actioners of the 1970s, this unpretentious film benefits from sharp editing, on-location shooting and strong acting.

Dated crime drama headed by top cast including Anthony Quinn.

Audience Reviews for Across 110th Street

If you want to see what films were like before being politically correct hit the big screen this is your film to watch. Just to see what life was all about in Harlem in the 1960-1970 made this film enjoyable. The dress of the pimps, the action taken by NYPD, The Mob and the Streets of New York. If your insulted by bad language then this is not your film. Blew my mind to see a film made in 1972 with the word raciest used so many times. Lot of enjoyable forgotten black stars. This one goes to the top shelf of my collection. 4 1/2 stars.

Grouped in the blaxploitation vein, this is more a crime drama than your average exploitation film. A fantastic cast, a good script and a sweet soundtrack. The direction is a bit erratic at times, and the ending not as climatic as it wanted to be, but the goods of the film surpass these flaws.

It's my personal opinion when I say the 70's produced some of the best films, ever. Filmmakers were trying to break loose of tired Hollywood traditions and branching out to make "real" films. Not all were great, but even those low budget types had something different to offer. Across 110th Street takes blaxploitation out of it's downward spiral of repeated structures and tries to give it an artistic value. It succeeds on some levels bringing with it some interesting characters.The story, too, has some moments of truth, and there are plenty of unexpected developments punctuating the extremely violent action. It's also fun to sing the chorus to Bobby Womack's title hit.

There is debate about whether this film should be classified as a blaxploitation film, or as a forerunner to those films. I'm on the fence about it (for now), but one thing is certain regardless: this is an outstanding, well made and pretty solid crime film in its own right.

I could ramble about this one for a while, but just for the sake of time, I'll just try to keep it short and say that I love how this film manages to be gritty, violent (I was surprised at how violent this ended up being), and entertaining, yet still retain a hearty dose of intelligence and substance. That's probably why this film usually gets a fair amount of praise from the critics and intellectuals who normally look down upon blaxploitation and urban crime films. There's tons of subtext, yet none of it is too heavy handed or preachy.

Another great thing about this one is the acting. Anthony Quinn and Yaphet Kotto each give wonderful performances that are multilayered and believable. The music and cinematography are also quite nice, although I feel it necessary to give a mild jeer over the fact that the climactic ending is supposed to be in Harlem but was actually shot on location on the Lower East Side. The rest of it was filmed in Harlem, so why not the whole thing?
