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.
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.
The brutality of both the criminals and the police is what gives the film its shock value and special feel.
I expected just your average cop goes undercover movie but this 1 was actually pretty good with some nice twists & turns thrown in here & there
