...clearly influential (star Conte even went on to play "The Godfather's" Don Barzini)...

July 16, 2011 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Superb performances by Conte, Robinson, and Adler lift the ordinary dramatics into loftier territory.

December 12, 2004 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Inspirado no mesmo livro que deu origem a A Lança Partida, o filme foi adaptado pelo mesmo Philip Yordan, mas também não funciona.

July 25, 2003 | Rating: 2/5
