Critic Reviews for The Brothers Rico

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

A primitive, absorbing, meat-and-potatoes-make that spaghetti-and-meatballs-gangster movie from 1957.

January 7, 2013's the Catholic sense of doom pervading the film's atmosphere that makes it so distinctively Karlson's.

April 7, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Harrowing gangster thriller shows high cost of blindly trusting authority.

December 29, 2015 | Full Review…

Conte's strong physical presence being challenged by outside dark forces gives the film its noir look.
