Crime Wave

DVD review from The Movie Snob

Crime Wave (B-). Continuing through my film noir DVD collection, I watched this movie featuring a young Charles Bronson (then known as Charles Buchinsky). Two hardcases break out of prison and go on a crime spree. They kill a cop in Los Angeles, and the whole force is out gunning for them. One hard-boiled detective is convinced the crooks are going to contact an ex-con on parole, Steve Lacey, who’s now married and working a straight job as a mechanic. Sure enough, they do, and Lacey is suddenly caught between criminals who’ll kill him if he doesn’t help them out and a cop who’ll put him away again if he does. Not a bad little movie.
