Critic Reviews for Al Capone

All Critics (4)

Rod Steiger plausibly portrays the late unlamented Chicago gang-lord in an interesting semi-fictional melodrama, corny in spots but no cornier than the Prohibition era it represents.

November 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Rod Steiger gives his Method acting technique a workout as he captures the fiery persona of Al Capone and makes the gangster a lively larger-than-life subject.

September 15, 2010 | Rating: B | Full Review…

... the most comprehensive film portrait of the notorious racketeer and mob boss who literally ruled Chicago for years.

Steiger chews scenery...and this B-grade action programmer.
