Factual and almost documentary-like in the beginning, this is the CSI of the 1940s, featuring on-site filming of the FBI's actual crime-solving tools and laboratory. But soon we find a character with which to identify with -- an FBI agent (Mark Stevens) infiltrating a city gang which has already committed two murders in the town. But there is a mole in the local police department and the crime boss is getting hot on our man's trail. Will our FBI spy beat him to the punch? There's a symbolic twist in the end, and a good sense of increasing pace. I enjoyed this one a lot!
Haven't really seen the CSI of that era, so it was refreshing. Also god damn people did not like windows in this movie
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
