Critic Reviews for Outside the Law

All Critics (2)

It's lucky for the film that when Priscilla Dean isn't onscreen, Lon Chaney usually is, since those two are by and large the only humans that give it any kind of spice.

Audience Reviews for Outside the Law


A pretty good crime drama, I think Browning is better at horror, but this movie was enjoyable. The story is good, and the actors too, it's not great, but I liked it anyway.
