" I've seen a ton of Marilyn Monroe pictures and I think this is the best movie she's done. Too bad she's hardly in it. Her role is the very definition of comic relief, as she gets two scenes (one uneventful, the second hilarious) in the midst of a very intense heist movie full of angst, loneliness, and indignation as cops and criminals fight against each other and between themselves. The movie would be a superior crime drama with or without Marilyn, but her hysterically funny second scene is the"

"With his filmic adaption of The Maltese Falcon, John Huston proved that he can do film-noir and do it well. Though not quite as sharp as this early film, The Asphalt Jungle continues to prove his talent with directing these sleek crime dramas, especially in the height of Hollywood's Golden Age.
