Fast moving, scary and enthralling

A perverse love story of an ambitious daring young thug who tried to silence a waitress as a potential witness to a murder. The setting was 1960's (instead of 1930's when the book was published) during a summer of youthful riot in Brighton, a seaside resort on the southern coast of England.

The film was based on a novel of the same name by British novelist Graham Greene. Acting was decent over all and the scenery around Brighton was interesting to look at. One problem is you don't care enough about characters in the film, and that makes watching it less enjoyable. Worth a look if you have a craving for British cinema.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

Imaginative and stylish film noir. The acting is great and the story is complex. If you're looking for a typical Hollywood shoot-em-up then this isn't the movie for you, but if you want something unique, then I highly recommend watching Brighton Rock.

crime drama - England before it was acceptable to be a bad-guy. A little out dated and hokie in comparison to today's criminals but in the end...dead is dead.

I'm not sure if there was ever much hope for it.

Thank goodness, I have not read Graham Greene's novel to make a comparison. I am not impressed by the lead's performance (Sam Riley as Pinkie). He's stiff and except for his pretty-boy-look, the character lacks some gravitas. The 60s ambience was beautifully captured against the fantasy-looking Brighton backdrop and the wild and swinging youth zeitgeist.
