  1. There is a reason this film (and I use that term loosely) has not been released on DVD.. I am a huge Steve McQeen fan, but this is a terrible movie… Poor Ann-Margaret..no wonder she never really was taken seriously as an actress.. This movie reminded me more a musical, without the music.. (Think “Showboat”).. cheesey lines, uneven editing, hey the list goes on and on.. I know, the current poker craze has everyone jumping on anything having to do with the game.. but save your money.. this movie stinks..

  2. I bough this collection because I heard such great things about the movie “Bullitt”. After watching it for 45 minutes I just turned it off. The sound effects sound like they were recorded by a kid and are out of sync with the events, the action sequences are predictable, and the acting is some of the worst I have ever seen. I have no desire to watch any of the others in this collection. I’m a big fan of older films and this was disappointing to say the least.

  3. First of all this is not a bad movie, even a flawed movie. It’s just that it ain’t anything special either. One of those movies that nobody pays much attention to until years, many years later and -for whatever reason- it grabs the hearts of nostalgics who want to believe that they really like it and that it really is a great movie.

    Nonsense. I was very much interested in checking for myself -after reading/hearing the stream of good reviews- how good this movie was. Sure it’s nice to watch Steve McQueen play a cool role in a quality movie (since he had not many grand roles in his career) but the director just wasn’t good enough to give him the vehicle that Steve needed to satify the inteligent critics (nor the audiences of its time).

    It reminds me of the case of Elvis Presley in the movies. You would love to see him in a great role, sure, who wouldn’t. But how many (not good but) great movies did he make? To my count only one: Michael Curtiz’s King Creole. Truly a masterpiece. But, I am sorry I have to say, ole buddy Steve wasn’t even lucky to get into one of this caliber. However much we would like to think this is the one, it just ain’t.

    And I am writing this because I am disappointed after all the expectations I had of watching a truly grand Steve McQueen movie at last. So go out, get it, and check it yourself. But me, I am not watching any more second rate director movies any more. I’ve had it!

  5. I will give “The Cincinnati Kid” this much; the film perfectly and colorfully captures the milieu of the gambling world of Depression-era New Orleans. There are a number of colorful character performances on hand here most notably by Edward G. Robinson, Karl Malden, and Ann-Margret. My problem with the film is that as a non-afficienado of card-playing this film did not engage me. It is not necessarily a prerequisite to be a fan of the game to appreciate the film. A good example of this would be “The Hustler” which involved pool-sharks, another sport that is alien to me. That film at least involved you because you had compelling combatants in the persons of Paul Newman and Jackie Gleason. Herein lies the enigma of “The Cincinnati Kid”: the Kid is not a particularly fleshed out or interesting character to engender our rooting interest. This is odd because Steve McQueen usually imbues his characters with some depth but he seems lost with this character. Either that or the Kid is not a particularly well written character. Your enjoyment of this film is dependent on your interest in stud (…) while others be forewarned.
