The Reviews for Brute Force (1947) 720p


Film-Noir without femme fataleReviewed byog_swiftyVote: 9/10

One of several great noirs directed by Jules Dassin, a man who's views gained him exclusive place on (in)famous Hollywood blacklist (which later met the representative of Dr. Walters as well). The film was shocking in its time for violent scenes and the depiction of the chief of the prison as a sadistic bastard (which is normal phenomenon nowadays).

I personally enjoyed flashbacks of prisoners from cell R17, because it was nice and quick overview of their "destinies" and it was also some room for femininity in the movie - bringing the beauty of Ann Blyth, Yvonne de Carlo, Ella Raines and Anita Colby.

Burt Lancaster really fit in the role of Joe and Hume Cronyn really reminded me Percy from Green Mile - the only difference was that Munsey was not so cocky...

Classic Movie!!Reviewed byronevickersVote: 10/10

Without a shadow of a doubt, Brute Force is a classic movie that still stands today, as a powerful piece of film-making. Everything about this movie is top notch - the acting, the direction, the cinematography, the pacing are all essential ingredients in this superb film. Although there's not a weak link in the entire film, special mention must go to Burt Lancaster, Art Smith, John Hoyt, Charles Bickford, Sam Levene, and Hume Cronyn as the evil & sadistic Munsey. The deft touch of Jules Dassin is there for all to see, and the film builds to a tremendous climax. In 1947 this must have been an extremely powerful and hard-hitting film, and it remains so to this day. For anyone who appreciates movie-making at its best, this is hard to beat.

Middling Prison DramaReviewed bykenjhaVote: 6/10

The inmates of an overcrowded prison become restless and plan a breakout. It features an impressive cast of familiar faces, led by Lancaster in just his second film, but his is essentially a one-note performance. Cronyn makes an appropriately slimy villain. Women are featured in brief flashbacks, which add little to the film. The corniest flashback features an encounter between Lancaster and a crippled Blyth. The lovely De Carlo is wasted in a cameo role. The script by future director Brooks is not very interesting and Dassin tends towards the melodramatic. On the plus side, the cinematography is crisp and the score by Rozsa is pretty good.
