Edward L can't renovate his style
13 January 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

When I saw "Three came to kill", starring Cameron Mitchell, I had the feeling that I saw "Inside the mafia " again. Mobsters taking hostages - a good American family - in order to kill some important personality. Cameron Mitchell plays in both movies. These two are written by the same screenwriter, produced by the same company, and directed by the same man.

Manufactured product.

But I like that very much. Little grade B thriller.

I forgot to say that both are shot in semi documentary style, with off voice explaining the situations and the efforts made by the police and government forces to fight against crime.

In fact, I do not remember if there is off voice for "Inside the mafia". Anyway, you have it in many Edward L cahn movies.
