Fine made-for-TV gangster tale by director Dan Curtis; sequel to "Melvin Purvis, G-Man"
4 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent period detail and some tight acting make this made-for-TV film very entertaining. While the take on real-life G-Man Melvin Purvis is highly suspect, Dale Robertson does a great job in a flashy role. Director Curtis is really under-rated; his style of directing - the quick zoom from below, the fast cutting, etc. - fits the television medium he usually worked in quite well. Very enjoyable.
