" Cagney's performance alone makes this movie good. Although he's merciless and insanely vindictive criminal (come on, was the killing the horse really that necessary?), his attitude and expressions gave him that unique charisma and makes it impossible not to like him. And how could one not after "I'm not that tough" scene? Plus, the guy is funny. I laughed so much during the brief scene in which obviously gay tailor is admiring Cagney's physique. And I can't believe that's actually in the mov"

"16.7. Arvosana on varmasti liian alhainen, tää on nimittäin kaikin puolin ihan laadukas elokuva. Ilahdutti erityisesti poikkeuksellinen kylmäkiskoisuus tämän aikakauden elokuvalta, tässä ei selvästikään romantisoitu gansteri- tai muutakaan elämää. Valitettavasti mä en erityisemmin syty gangsterikuvioista, oli kyse klassikkomatskusta tai ei. Genre-entusiasteille suosittelen vahvasti."

Filmsite's 100 Greatest Film Scenes (102 movies items)

"One of the most vividly remembered, misogynistic, and vicious scenes in film history is the breakfast scene in this definitive and early gangster film. It is one of the single-most cruel acts ever depicted in a film. A life of crime has made the character cruel and hardened. In cocky gangster Tom Power's (James Cagney) apartment, he walks sleepily to the breakfast table in his striped pajamas. He is in a foul mood, bored, grouchy and irritable after a demanding phone conversation. Tom has grown"

Simpsons References of the Obscure Kind (10 movies items)

" In the episode "Brother from the Same Planet", Bart and Homer aren't getting along, so they replace each other with people from the Big Brother Foundation, exploiting its service of bringing together an orphan (which Bart claims to be) and an adult guardian. In describing his son's evilness to an adopted little brother, Homer exaggerates wildly, with a fake flashback to Bart shoving a grapefruit into his face. Homer might have been confusing memories of reality with those of movies or TV (so"
