...the movie's still worth seeing, though, if only for Freeman's electrifying performance.

Street Smart winds up being a bit too smart for its own good, but it's compelling and complex.

A clever thriller with a lot of unbelievable scenes and a sappy ending, but two wonderful performances.

There's something about seedy undersides that brings out the best (or at least the personal) in director Jerry Schatzberg ... though his Elia Kazan social consciousness could use a little toning down.

Schatzberg's major problems are lethargic pacing and a strained plot.
