Critic Reviews for Run for Cover

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Mr. Cagney's performance, as usual, is cocky and colorful without a great deal of substance or strenuous sincerity.

March 25, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Ray's sensitive handling of actors and his exact compositional sense are as much in evidence as ever.

February 9, 2006 | Full Review…

Cagney tried to revive gis career with this offbeat, moody but not great Western directed by Nicholas Ray, who imabues the film with signature themes and visuals.

March 19, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Cagney was about 56 when he made this interesting western. He was a bit long in the tooth, but his vitality showed through his wrinkles and the result was a pleasing picture.

October 23, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

An intriguing low-key western.

December 6, 2005 | Full Review…

Ray endows it with his usual themes of generational conflict and societal injustice, and does a powerful job getting these themes across.
