5.0 out of 5 stars Brighton Rock - rocks!, 7 Nov. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Brighton Rock [DVD] [1947] (DVD)
Great technical advancements in film-making have tended to spoil 'modern' film goers with all manner of 'special' effects and the wonders that are now possible due largely to computers. If these things are necessary for a person to enjoy a film, then Brighton Rock is probably not for them.

Brighton Rock was made in an age where acting, camera work, directing and writing - ALONE - combined to decide the worth of a film and Brighton Rock was found to be one of the outstandingly fine films of its age.

Brighton Rock shows that the Americans did not have a 'lock' on gangster movies. While, admittedly, being on a smaller stage, Brighton Rock has gangster lore a plenty and Attenborough's performance is top notch.

A brilliant novelist's excellent book has enabled brilliant Directing, Camera work and Acting to produce a film that compares favourably to the best of its kind ever made.
