hmmmmmmmmm
26 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

im a big fan of cagney and i enjoy o'briens work also.

that being said, and it seems i will be the first reviewer to think this film was nothing special. i say this for future people who come to IMDb for a quick overview to see if i want to watch over something else like i do.

granted its a very early film, with good actors and a a few good supporting actors, but that being said, my opinions are based on the acting and script writing parts.

yes cagneys known for the little tough guy, but his character went far beyond tough guy to obnoxious and kinda mean.

cagney in this early movie is not the 'loveable' tough guy he's known for. he is quite annoying and deserves every punch and punishment he gets.

o'brien on the other hand did a great job acting as the fair and respected character.

cagney in blackface is kind of funny posing as a black man, funnier yet is his buddy yelling = way to go chesty = as he is escaping on a turned down leave.

until i read the others reviews, i didn't know the 2 ships used were destroyed in pearl harbor. that i agree is a very historical memory the film offers.

it's worth a watch, but is no highlight of anyones career.

i have to admit i was kinda disappointed in this movie because i am a fan of old cinema, but sadly i just think cagney character wasn't likable, and the movie tried to portray him as such.
