Rocky Sullivan is riveting. His movements are quick and vital, his speech like machine-gun fire, his demeanor sharp and confident. He is all attitude and style.

James Cagney is in top form as a gangster with with redeeming qualities in this well-directed, Oscar nominated picture from Michael Curtiz, who scored in 1938 two Oscar nods; Bogart and Raft are also good.

Envolvente do início ao fim (num desfecho, diga-se de passagem, poderosamente dramático), o filme traz Cagney em uma de suas atuações mais intensas e inspiradas.

the way Angels With Dirty Faces balances hard-bitten gangster drama with warmly stage-managed religiosity gives us an entertaining period piece, one which shows that after more than sixty years you still can't go wrong with a Jimmy Cagney movie.

An archetype of 1930s and '40s gangster films. The plotting and melodramatic storytelling are stilted by today's standards, but classic movie lovers enjoy that.
