  1. Aardsy's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    Solid beginning, generic, silly ending.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    Une œuvre bienvenue d'un réalisateur fort hétéroclite... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    For once, Jack Elam, Lee Van Cleef and Neville Brand spend a lot more than their usual 4 1/2 minutes on the screen in 'Kansas City Confidential'. To be honest, they're clearly the main reason to see this film nowadays. One might also say that the first 30 minutes of the movie are hectic of course but the ridiculous love story that follows prevents this Phil Karlson film from obtaining the cult status. Recommended.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    Good tough 50's crime caper from director Karlson featuring a strong script for the 'B' genre. Though it certainly plays to the conventions the film has enough thrills and slapped faces to keep one fixated. Performances are nothing special though Lee Van Cleef, Neville Brand and Jack Elam are certainly a trio of memorable accomplices.

  5. orangey's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    the acting is wooden at times, and it could loose some running time, but it packs enough twists and turns to keep the viewer engaged

  6. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    As far as plots go, this is tops.

  7. serotoninronin's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    I love this movie. Probably one of my five favorite heist flicks. Anyone who mistakes this for a noir is, well, making a mistake. Little known fact: early 50's crime flick =/= noir.

  8. Tony Zhou's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    Why do I feel this movie just deflates? The opening scene is excellent visual storytelling, the three accomplices have perfect faces, but once it gets to Mexico, it drags. The love interest acts in ways that are borderline absurd, plus I get a sappy ending. Where's the noir I was promised at the beginning of this movie?

  10. krisjkondrad's rating of the film Kansas City Confidential

    A great film noir. The "poorman's" version of The Killers (1946) and still one of the best. The best craps scene in any movie for anyone who's ever thrown dice. Plus it features the greatest face to ever grace the silver screen...Jack Elam. Lee Van Cleef is in it to...and with Lee Van Cleef you know you're in for some solid entertainment.
