"The camera placement is meticulous and sublimely integrated with the movement of the actors..."

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 67 ratings.
The perfect bank robbert is pulled off by 4 bandits, 3 of whom don't know each other. An innocent man (John Payne) is framed and seeks revenge. More realistic than most films of its time. It's well worth watching everyone's performance in this last noir classic, especially Lee Van Cleef's.
First off. Great film. I picked up on something of Lee Van Cllef's character. The duo of hit man after Payne are they "Gay" ?. Ground Breaking for the time I must say !!
Alpha does very well with their prints and packaging.
"Kansas City Confidental" is a great movie by all standards. Both the script and the actors are outstanding.
John Payne and Preston Foster lead the cast but it's the young Jack Elam, Neville Brand and Lee Van Cleef that add the spice to this well written "noir".
The "hold-up" occurs in Kansas City but most of the picture takes place at their rondezvous city in Mexico. It's here where the suspense rises to a fever pitch and climaxes in an unexpected ending.
A great "watch" - Very entertaining
