Despite a low budget, this is a pretty good crime flick
27 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Vice Raid" is a very good cop film with mostly little-known actors--apart from Mamie Van Doren. It's the story about an unnamed city's vice squad--one in which much of the force is on the take to the mob. However, one cop isn't on the take and isn't afraid of the crooks--and because of that, Mr. Big has decided to ruin him. So, using some help he imported from another city, he uses Carol Hupdson (Van Doren) and the cop's own partner to lie about his to internal affairs. Next thing you know, he's off the force--and itching for revenge. And what finally helps the now ex-cop in his crusade against the gangs? Carol's little sister is the key. How exactly it all works out is for you to see for yourself.

While this film lacks a huge budget and big-name stars, it makes up for it with tough dialog and a nice little story. The bottom line is that for an inexpensive noir film, it delivers the goods and is worth your time.
