(de) wrote: Slick, quick style with a plot that frustrates but eventually comes off well. For me it was crying out for a bit more character development, the writing also possibly a bit sub-standard, lacking more memorable dialouge for those familar with these gritty London crime thrillers.

(fr) wrote: Decent slasher, but far from one of the best. The killer was pretty creepy, and the deaths were well-done. However the ending totally ripped off Sleepaway Camp.
(gb) wrote: Classic so bad that it's good 80's cheesy, monster in rubber suit, horror flick, 80's hair, 80's clothes, 80's no clothes...bloody birthing scene at the end. Roger Corman production, what else can you expect from this?
(jp) wrote: Le Doulos follows two main characters: Maurice, played by Serge Reggiani, and Silien, played by Jean-Paul Belmondo. Maurice is a burglar who has just finished his six-year sentence. He then murders his friend Gilbert, who deals with jewelry. When he is finished killing him he steals the jewels that were involved in a bank robbery that take took place recently and also takes his money. He then hides the goods by digging a whole by a light post and goes back to his place. Afterward, back at his pad, he plans a heist of some rich man's estate and is helped by his friend Silien, who is rumored to be a police informant. Silien is only involved to bring Maurice some needed equipment. The plan starts going pretty good but then Maurice notices a few police cars arriving discreetly at the estate and him and his partner abandon the plan and make a run for it. While on the run his partner is mortally shot by one of the cops and Maurice is able to shoot the man but Maurice has also been shot and after running for a while he eventually passes out on a sidewalk where a mysterious car shows up and takes him to a woman's house. Maurice is visited by a doctor who tells him to stay in bed and just rest but as soon as the doctor leaves he goes back out seeking to kill Silien because he is sure that it was him that informed the cops. Sometime later Silien is picked up by the cops and questioned, this makes it seem that he really was the informant. The film carries on with more plot twists that deal with such themes as friendship and loyalty and all done with the typical hard-boiled dialogue that go on in Melville's other films until the ironic conclusion of the film.Le Doulos is great neo-noir from the French master of the genre, Jean-Pierre Melville. It is full of plot twists and dialogue that almost seem confusing at first but once one of the characters breaks it down it starts to make sense. Melville handles his film with great skill as usual. The b&w cinematography is really great. All the actors are really good especially the two leads. And the ironic twist at the end is fantastic as well as the other plot twists. It's a great film that is slightly flawed and is why I won't give it a full score. Still it is a must see for noir fans and fans of Melville. 9/10

(de) wrote: One of the worst films ever. If it was a student film by a 16 year old it would be fine but otherwise a complete waste of time.
(de) wrote: An offbeat value-driven comedy delivered in a cynical manner. Smart directing and Eckhart's machismo guarantee this film will entertain the lot.
