IMDb reviewers should not misrepresent the movies they review
24 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not a review, just a comment.

F. Gwynplaine MacIntyre remarks in his dismissal of this movie that "This movie bears no resemblance to reality." Unfortunately, his synopsis of the movie's plot bears very little resemblance to the plot itself, and thus most of his sneers are irrelevant.

The plot outline given by Rocky-19 is far nearer the mark. Also, there's a fairly accurate (and fuller) synopsis at the Turner Classic Movies site.

It goes without saying that IMDb reviewers should not misrepresent the movies they review simply for the sake of badmouthing them. This is no masterpiece (although the Nathanael West script is a cut above what you'd expect from a George Raft movie); but it's certainly not the barrel of clichés Mr MacIntyre makes it out to be.
