Critic Reviews for Machine Gun Kelly
Audience Reviews for Machine Gun Kelly
You don't listen to me so good, do you? Machine Gun Kelly is a man on the run after a bank robbery goes bad. Kelly is fortunate that he has a girl as clever as he is as they look to continue to execute jobs while alluding the police. As Kelly begins assembling a new crew, he has trust issues and may begin working with guys more crooked then him or perhaps some undercover cops. "A slap is better than no touch at all." Roger Corman, director of Deathsport, Wild Angels, The Masque of Red Death, A Time for Killing (1967), The Terror, The Raven, and The Haunted Palace, delivers Machine-Gun Kelly. The storyline for this picture is wonderful and reminded me of Public Enemies (the John Dillinger story). The acting was outstanding and Charles Bronson delivered a remarkable performance as the lead character. "Go ahead, apple, and I'll peal and carve you." I ran a query of Roger Corman pictures about a month ago on my DVR and this film popped up. I had never heard of this movie but who am I to turn down an opportunity to watch a Charles Bronson picture. Bronson delivers a charismatic performance and does a great job depicting Kelly as the ultimate tough guy. I strongly recommend watching this film if you enjoy gangster pictures. "I don't understand." "You don't have to. Scream and you die." Grade: A
Bronson is great in his first starring role. This Roger Corman crime flick is a lot of fun and whizzes by at a blistering 80 minutes
