Critic Reviews of "Angels with Dirty Faces"Arizona Daily StarApril 21, 2006
Although the movie trades heavily on gang-film staples, there's also ample comedy packed into the mix.DVDJournal.comApril 07, 2006
the way Angels With Dirty Faces balances hard-bitten gangster drama with warmly stage-managed religiosity gives us an entertaining period piece, one which shows that after more than sixty years you still can't go wrong with a Jimmy Cagney movie.EmanuelLevy.ComJuly 17, 2005
James Cagney is in top form as a gangster with with redeeming qualities in this well-directed, Oscar nominated picture from Michael Curtiz, who scored in 1938 two Oscar nods; Bogart and Raft are also good.Cinema em CenaJuly 13, 2005
Envolvente do início ao fim (num desfecho, diga-se de passagem, poderosamente dramático), o filme traz Cagney em uma de suas atuações mais intensas e inspiradas.Movie MetropolisFebruary 13, 2005
...most of all, it's Cagney: At the top of his game, the bad guy we have to love. He makes it all happen.Reno Gazette-JournalFebruary 07, 2005
An archetype of 1930s and '40s gangster films. The plotting and melodramatic storytelling are stilted by today's standards, but classic movie lovers enjoy that.Slant MagazineFebruary 02, 2005
Angels With Dirty Faces benefits from the Production Code because it forces the gangster film to acknowledge its nihilism.Filmcritic.comJanuary 29, 2005

Wonderful morality story; one of Cagney's most memorableeFilmCritic.comJuly 25, 2002
If you're looking to study the gangster classics, I know a good place you can start.Decent Films GuideMay 08, 2002
Rocky Sullivan is riveting. His movements are quick and vital, his speech like machine-gun fire, his demeanor sharp and confident. He is all attitude and style.Tim Dirks' The Greatest FilmsJanuary 01, 2000
Angels With Dirty Faces (1938) is a classic example of a Warner Bros. gangster/crime melodrama of the 1930s
