The reverberations in this MGM B-feature are multiple, although that doesn’t prevent it from still seeming fresh today… Promoting the film when it came out, Huston described each member of the gang as having a separate vice, and this is what also makes each of them life-sized. No less impressive are Miklós Rózsa’s characteristically brazen score and Harold Rosson’s glittering cinematography.

[One] of Huston’s best work of [the 1950s…] It’s a noir observing the build-up and aftermath of a jewel heist, taking considerable interst in both the process of the vault-cracking and the workaday lives and dreams of its gang of double-crossing crooks, including a superb, oleaginous Louis Calhern as their old-moneyed backer, the whole affair owing not a little to Huston’s own 1948 The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

It firmed up the template for one of cinema’s most familiar dramatic arcs: the assembling of the team, the high-precision execution of the caper, the chaotic and generally bloody aftermath. Yet even if The Asphalt Jungle was seen in its own day as a model of nail-biting suspense, it comes across now as a most Chekhovian film noir, steeped in a mood of regret even before the action begins and proceeding almost gently on its inevitable downward course.
