Audience Reviews for The Criminal (Concrete Jungle)


i like stanley baker and this is a showcase for him as a tough loner who is outmaneuvered by a criminal gang. most of it takes place in prison where he is quite at ease as a top dog. then he's released and pulls a robbery with some associates and everything starts to come apart. losey throws u in the midst and at times it's hard to get your bearings but stay with it for the great final scene
