Pretty cool movie
This is a feel good film. Well, I got that feeling from it. Crime, drama, gangster, court and a little romance thrown in, the entire film is steady and this makes it simple to view and enjoy. Not too heavy or complicated, it relies on scene structuring to cultivate the story line. It has the type of acting that provides a comfortable viewing experience. Humor is placed in a measured effect throughout the film. The plot is steady. It seems to give the same atmosphere of TV or detective shows made in the 70's. One nice thing is the use of good actors without causing any single actor/character to become the "star" of the film. Also of note; the intro song is good, the use of radio and TV broadcast in the film and the sky shots of the city.
