Cops and Robbers
10 January 2003 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

William S. Hart plays one of his 'good bad man' roles, this time not in the wild west of the cattle ranges, but in the wild west of San Francisco. Hart gives one of his usual fine performances as he returns from World War One a hero and has to decide between his old life in a criminal gang and a new life as a cop. The morality is a lot more conflicted than usual, but he brings it off.

One of the things you might miss in this movie is Joseph August's breathtaking cinematography of the wild lands. San Francisco is a cinematic city, but we don't see much of it here, mostly in backdrops.
