L.A. Confidential Reviews

  • 22h ago

    The three main characters and their dynamic personalities really make this film a must-see. A movie with a complicated or on the verge of having a complicated plot is always an enjoyable watch as long as the film isn't too complicated. The art direction and cinematography are exceptional in the film.

    I'm struggling to think of any ways in which L.A. Confidential could be improved, so it's a 10/10 from me.

    Great Film Noir with outstanding performances from Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce. It's interesting to watch characters with completely different values interact with each other.

    With a star studded cast, this throw back crime drama hits all marks. Guy, Kevin, Russell, Kim, Danny and the list continues... were very solid in their performances. Good gritty, gumshoe type drama. I enjoyed all the twists and turns on this ride. I would classify this as a must see neatly tied up film.

    L.A. Confidential, Curtis Hanson's affectionate nod to the film noirs of yesteryear, is a movie that is virtually impossible to dislike. The labyrinthine plot includes murder, rape, drugs, prostitution, good cops, bad cops and a host of other unseemly subjects but never loses its focus despite its incredible complexity. The primary characters are three police officers (Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe), each with their own distinct personal agendas and, thanks to the fantastic script and remarkable performances, fully developed personalities and motivations. While there might be some temptation to take notes to keep things straight as the film unfolds, things wrap up nicely before the final credits roll.
