Audience Reviews for Asphalt


This movie has some of that cool German expressionist style, but it also feels like a film noir before film noir was around. The story is one we've seen a million times, the officer who falls in love with the criminal. The ending was good though. Overall it's pretty good, but I think it could have been better.
