Audience Reviews for Crime in the Streets

  • Jun 20, 2020
    Less a film than a filmed theatrical play (it is based on television play), this Don Seigal movie disappointed me. Sam Leavitt's cinematography, though, is reason enough to screen and re-screen, plus performances by Peter J. Votrian and Virginia Gregg are commendable. But, I saw nothing remarkable in John Cassavetes acting and found the movie stale in its storytelling.

    this is the usual concrete jungle/wild in the streets teenage delinquent drama, aside from cassavetes' intense performance, still a few years away from making his own films

    No poster? so rude. I almost cried at the end. "Richie! You're my brother...I love you! Ahh so geat. So this kid Richie, a lousy good for nothing hood, wants to kill a man who slapped em. But does he have what it takes...you'll just have to find out. Don't mind the corny voice over.

    Once you get past the stellar title sequence you'll probably spend most of the 90-minute running time wanting something very bad to happen to John Cassavettes' character. Crime in the Streets starts off kind of promising but it quickly turns into a Rebel Without Cause/Blackboard Jungle copycat with none of the charisma.
