Policeman Anthony Oliver goes after hijack gang led by Ferdy Mayne
11 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Crossroads to Crime" refers to a roadside cafe and gas station where trucks stop. The legit front part is owned by a feisty character played by Miriam Karlin. The back part is run by a gang of hi-jackers whose boss is Ferdy Mayne. His chief lieutenant is played by George Murcell. Enter local cop Anthony Oliver who gets involved when Murcell is hustling the suspicious Karlin into a car to take her to see Mayne.

The plot is not bad. The music adds atmosphere. Some of the photography is suitably dark, and there's enough action. Where the movie flags is that the dialog interplay is often too rough and so is the editing. One gets the impression that it needed more rehearsal so that the actors could smooth down and provide realistic scenes. Better directing might have made more out of it. There really should have been more tension and more conflict brought out, other than the rough talk of Murcell and Mayne. They provide most of the interest. The story has a good twist at the end.

As such short British crime movies go, this one is at best average. Perhaps because it involves crime from start to finish, it will be classified as a Brit noir. If so, don't expect much. I place it in the c-noir category.

Despite these drawbacks, there is something attractive about these little movies that makes them watchable.
