If Kansas City Confidential was a meal, it would consist of a plate full of spice - but no meat.

Terse and tough, Kansas City Confidential is one of the great lean, mean B crime thrillers...

Falls into that rarefied early-'50s cycle of noir, which benefited from B directors who had learned how to quickly dispense with the genre conventions and deliver brutal action and lurid innuendos.

It's a decent film, but its payoff just isn't up to the level of its buildup.

Slant Magazine

Phil Karlson's rote heist-revenge flick aims to be stone cold, but can't seem to get any frost to grow around its warm, mushy heart.
