The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: John Payne, Coleen Gray
An ex-con trying to go straight is framed for a million dollar armored car robbery and must go to Mexico in order to unmask the real culprits. A gem from Film Noir’s golden era, Kansas City Confidential (1952) is a taught and gritty melodrama, reportedly an inspiration for Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.
"Kansas City Confidential" was released back in 1952 and it still remains one of the best Film Noir movies ever released. I m not going to go into plot details here, what is written above is plenty enough to know before watching the film but the story is sure to keep you glued to the screen the entire time and the film's two leads, John Payne and Coleen Gray both give amazing performances.
The Film Detective has done a fantastic job bringing back lost and possibly forgotten films and given them new life through their amazing restoration process and this one is no different. The Blu-ray version looks and sounds fantastic nd that is saying a lot for a film from 1952. Hollywood just doesn't make films like "Kansas City Confidential" and they probably never will but thanks to companies like The Film Detective old and young alike can now enjoy the film for years to come. If you have seen the film before you know how entertaining it is but if you haven't you are in for a real treat.
Now is the time to own "Kansas City Confidential" on Blu-ray for the first time ever this is a must-own for all lovers of cinema. You can order the Blu-ray HERE.
