Critic Reviews for Wild Boys of the Road (Dangerous Days)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The underrated William A. Wellman made many neglected classics during the Depression, and this 1933 feature is one of the very best.

Wild Boys of the Road... is disappointing, primarily because it might have been so much more than it is.

The film -- as propulsive as a locomotive -- is sympathetic to the plight of the young, the unemployed, the female and the ethnic (the 'boys republic' is open to black and Jewish youngsters).

No mere Dear-Mr.-Roosevelt pamphlet, but a proto-Neorealist howl

Loved the energy of this heartfelt Depression-era social-conscious road film.

It's a cinematic blast of anger and outrage and exasperation sprung from the immediacy of the depression.
