Audience Reviews for The St. Valentine's Day Massacre

  • Jan 10, 2020
    The great Paul Frees narrates this accounting of the infamous 1929 killings that took place in Chicago. Director Roger Corman did not want to romanticize the Al Capone - Bugs Moran crime drama and Frees narrations accomplishes that. The film, however, was shot in Hollywood's backlots which works against Corman's desire to achieve a docudrama effect. Nonetheless, the film delivers and Jason Robards as Al Capone is casting genius.

    Jason Robards is not a miscast, and this can be seen more easily if you are a virgin from watching De Palma's take on Capone. He's like a mean and psycho version of Bogart. Like several users have pointed out correctly, this film does not take itself seriously and does not invite us to half way through. There is a constant voiceover as a tool for aiding the pace and the plot, advancing quickly through backgrounds and events. Above this, there is a mediocre screenplay, but a catchy score and a decent editing. Once all of this has been digested, everything comes out differently: like a highly entertaining and almost solid delivery to the worshipped gangster genre. Remember who's behind the camera. 75/100

    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.

    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.
