Critic Reviews for The Mob

All Critics (4)

An expertly-plotted noir, less psychologically disturbing and more straight-up undercover crime drama, but it ratchets up the tension nicely and Crawford is having a hell of a time acting like the tough guy.

[Broderick] Crawford is at his best as the veteran lawman playing the tough-guy dockworker, engaging and compelling and, at times, quite funny.

Feb 19, 2012 | Full Review…

William Bowers' dialogue coulda been a contenduh, for sure ("You must be part of my hangover" or "I need to go underground, like gophers and communists"), especially coming from Crawford's unlovely mug.

May 5, 2010 | Full Review…

The brutality of both the criminals and the police is what gives the film its shock value and special feel.
