Cagney plays yet another badass. This one falls short of classics like White Heat or Angels with Dirty Faces however. Perhaps because the production code had just went into effect? Seemed like it had less of a bite than his other films. Still has some cool moments, including Cagney headbutting a guy. 2.5 stars
