Criss Cross review by Soap2day
Get your popcorn on, because Criss Cross won`t let you go until the very end.
For all the 84 minutes this movie is running, there is not a minute that will be wasted watching it.
When it comes to movies of the genre Crime, Drama, this film immediately comes to mind.
One of the best movies of 1949, combining all the experience of the film industry of the past years.
Thanks to Robert Siodmak, many of the actors played their best roles in this movie.
On the screen Alan Napier, Beatrice Roberts, Burt Lancaster, Dan Duryea, Edna Holland, Esy Morales, Gene Evans, Griff Barnett, Joan Miller, John Doucette, Marc Krah, Meg Randall, Percy Helton, Raymond Burr, Richard Long, Stephen McNally, Tom Pedi, Tony Curtis, Yvonne De Carlo live out their roles as in life.
