Critic Reviews for Tenderloin

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The spectators were moved to loud mirth during the spoken episodes of this lurid film.

Tenderloin through Its deficiencies as a underworld film and as a talking picture may be dismissed on its own account. Possibilities of the talker are more interesting.

September 10, 2020 | Full Review…

Talking movies won't be an accomplished fact until there is some assurance that the movies know what to say. In the meantime, little films should be seen and not heard.

Melodrama has become comedy since they added sound. [Full review in Spanish]

September 10, 2020 | Full Review…

In so far as technical perfection is concerned [Tenderloin] is something of an achievement. The fault lies, unfortunately, in the fact that the talking movie (at least in Tenderloin) has not yet found anything of much importance to talk about.

[The thrills] fail to land.
