Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Apparently everybody was concerned with theatrical effects and forgot all about a story with point and intelligence."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"Neither juvenile delinquent drama or a wild youth thriller, this is a portrait in rage and shame and disappointment in fathers and father figures."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"An hysterical melodrama posing as a film noir due to the dark underworld it inhabits."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
