The Reviews for The Enforcer (1951) 720p

Stunning entertainment with twisted intrigue , thrills , realist frames and based on the real-life ¨Murder Inc.¨caseReviewed byma-cortesVote: 7/10

After years of chase , Assistant D.A. Martin Ferguson (Humphrey Bogart) has an important case against Murder, Inc. whose boss results to be a gangster named Albert Mendoza (Everett Sloane) . As the assistant district attorney goes after an organized band of murderers and to condemn Mendoza as well as put his gang behind bars . Meanwhile , Mendoza is in prison and his lieutenant Joseph Rico (Ted De Corsia) is going to testify . But Rico falls from a building to his death and Ferguson along with Capt. Frank Nelson (Roy Roberts) must work through the night going over everything to study the issue anew .

Exciting and thrilling picture with a complex intrigue , nice character studio , suspense , a lot of killings and full of flashbacks . One of the most grueling of even Bogart's mobster movies all done in gripping realism and shot in semi-documentary style . Interesting and moving screenplay by Martin Rackin . The picture has a Noir treatment of the real-life ¨Murder Inc¨ case , being narrated by means of flashbacks . There are murders galore ; as grisly killings by : hanging , razor , knife , falling heights , point blank shot and by pick axe filmed in hypnotic realism . Faint-heart people of the 50s were impressed for killing galore , horrific scenes and strong images by that time . According to the New York Times' Feb. 16, 2014 article on films influenced by the Kefauver hearings, Sen. Estes Kefauver appeared in a prologue for this film . It's splendidly played by Humphrey Bogart ; he was in his best period of the early 50s when he starred classic movies such as ¨The Caine Mutiny¨, ¨Sabrina¨, ¨Beat the devil¨, ¨The African Queen¨, ¨Sirocco¨, ¨In a lonely place¨, ¨Chain lightning¨, ¨Knock on any door¨ and this ¨The enforcer¨. The main star is backed by a host of fine support cast such as Zero Mostel , Ted de Corsia , Everett Sloane , Roy Roberts , Michael Tolan , King Donovan and the cowboy Bob Steele . Evocative and adequate cinematography by Robert Burks , Hitchcock's usual . Appropriate as well as atmospheric musical score by David Buttolph adds impact to the action .

The motion picture produced and distributed by Warner Bros. was compellingly directed by Bretaigne Windust . After several days of filming, director Bretaigne Windust fell seriously ill and was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Humphrey Bogart asked his old friend, director Raoul Walsh, to come in and shoot the picture until Windust recovered. Unfortunately, Windust was more seriously ill than most realized, and his recovery took several months, during which Walsh finished the film. However, Walsh refused to take screen credit for it, saying that the picture was Windust's big break and he wasn't going to take it away from him . Rating : Better than average . Worthwhile watching . The film will appeal to Humphrey Bogart fans .

Great Start, But Disappointing After ThatReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 5/10

This starts off powerfully, with a very interesting scene and some excellent film- noir photography, but after the witness dies, so does the movie in many respects.

From that point on, it's just a bunch of flashbacks. When the "live" scenes reappear, they are not always easy to discern what's going on. The film also becomes too talky too often.

However, the characters are tough and generally interesting, with some good acting. Film-noir-wise, despite the presence of superstar Humphrey Bogart along with guys like Zero Mostel, Everett Sloane and Ted de Corsia, it's average fare for the day. it could - and should - have been better.

No guns, no cops, no tricks & no ending ?Reviewed bygullwing592003Vote: 7/10

"If you're smart you can be a hero, if you're dumb you can be dead!" Joseph Rico (Ted De Corsia) tells D.A. Martin Ferguson (Humphrey Bogart) in this very dark, intense factual story of a Murder for Profit organization. Rico offers to give Ferguson the top man Albert Mendoza (Everett Sloan) if Ferguson plays ball. Ferguson needs Rico's testimony to convict Mendoza. In the building while under surveillance by Sgt.Whitlow (King Donovan) awaiting trial the next day, Ferguson loses his only eyewitness when Rico falls to his death.

From this point on the movie reveals it's plot & storyline from a series of flashbacks & several times we see flashbacks within a flashback. The flashback device is effective & even adds a dimension to the crime/film noir genre. Despite Bogart's star billing he doesn't dominate the film & is not in every scene & his absence is not missed due to the top notch supporting cast led by Ted De Corsia, Zero Mostel, Bob Steele, Jack Lambert etc.

Though we already know Rico is dead he is very much seen afterwards & dominates the film from the flashback scenes. Eventually when the movie transports us back to the present situation we still hear Rico's voice from a tape recorder.

Bogart's role as the D.A. Martin Ferguson is reminiscent of his earlier role in the 1937 film Marked Woman opposite Bette Davis as D.A. David Graham modeled after real life D.A. Thomas Dewey who convicted Lucky Luciano in 1935. For once Bogart appeared in a gangster film as a crusader of justice & again in 1951 in The Enforcer.

I really enjoy watching this movie but what I find disappointing is the abrupt, unexpected & inconclusive ending that leaves you up in the air. Bogart's exit line is "Alright Miss Vetto you got a date in court, I want to see the look on Mendoza's face when he looks into those big blue eyes again". Well as the viewer I would've also liked to have seen the doom & gloom on Mendoza's face when he see's Angela Vetto's big blue eye's. As Ferguson rebuilds his case with a new eyewitness.

We are robbed & deprived of all this & the subsequent courtroom trial proceedings & the chilling death scene of Mendoza walking his last mile to the hot seat, while a gloating Martin Ferguson watches as he has finally burned Mendoza in the chair in the name of justice. Just like James Cagney's electric chair scene in Angels With Dirty Faces or when he blows himself up in White Heat. 2 very strong endings. No place else to go. The Enforcer is a strong movie with a weak ending that could've been a lot better.
