[Across 110th Street] is well-made, realistic in presentation and effect with uniformly good portrayals from actors, but depressingly lacking in a sympathetic focal point for audiences to grasp.
It's a gutsy affair, given a distinct lift by the Harlem locations; and between the bouts of physical aggression, there are occasional moments of insight into the fraught relationship between Quinn and Kotto.
It manages at once to be unfair to blacks, vicious towards whites and insulting to anyone who feels that race relations might consist of something better than improvised genocide.
Extremely seedy and violent, this 1972 feature by Barry Shear and cinematographer Jack Priestley makes extraordinary use of Harlem locations.
Gritty and mindful of perspective, the feature is a bruising examination of power and desperation, filled with energetic chases and fiery confrontations.
Violence, especially violence at the expense of the black community, has seldom been more candidly dissected and critiqued in American film as it is in Across 110th Street.
Smartly edited with terrific location work in New York City. The dependable Kotto is a standout.
Barry Shear's picture tries to be hard-edged and aim for realism, but doesn't always succeed.
[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.
Before studios insisted on an injection of sugary sentiment, this what what a New York cop thriller looked like.
Effectively violent, brutal and with some outstanding dialogue in its first half, soon, however, this gritty crime drama begins to insult our intelligence with a series of contrived situations that dilute the realistic feel it is aiming for and proves why it has never become a classic.
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.
