    Great movie, one of the best noir films ever made. Screenplay is airtight and one of the best, acting is superb and the characters all have great arcs and development. Wonderfully shot and executed, and even better the second time.

    One of the best crime/mistery movie of the '90s. Great performances and exciting script.

    With enough crackling dialogue to help audiences through the convoluted script, and star turns by Crowe, Pearce, Spacey and Cromwell, LA Confidential is a prime neo-noir crime classic.

    L.A. Confidential es drama, crimen y misterio de la vieja escuela excelentemente empacados en una de las mejores tramas existentes en el cine. Tiene grandes personajes con sus grandes actuaciones correspondientes. Buenos diálogos, buenos giros, y técnicamente de primera calidad. No es para amarla, pero se puede ver que la ejecución de todo fue casi magistral y eso se admira sin pensarlo dos veces.

    LA Confidential feels like two different films from two different eras, competing with one another for our attention. On the one hand, you have a smart and stylish film noir that is deep in both technical achievement and a smart script. On the other you have a modern day crime thriller with strong psychological and emotional connections to the characters on screen.

    Surprisingly enough, this dichotomy never overwhelms itself, creating one of the most rewarding cinematic experiences of the 1990s.…

    So much attention is paid to the studio-driven achievements of Hollywood's golden age and the artistic ingenuity and daring of the 1970's that people seem to forget how great a decade the 90's were for American filmmaking. With the rise of Sundance and the independent scene, the stability of the home-movie market allowing for greater studio risk-taking (at least as compared to the decade before), and the coming-of-age of digital technology, it was the perfect time for telling old stories…

    While a noir isn't hard to do, making a retro one on such a grand scale is almost guaranteed to be disappointing. This one deserves all of the hype for not failing. The acting, direction, and score are on point and it chugs along at a steady pace that nearly justifies its over two hour run time. Like most crowd pleasers it gets wrapped up too tightly by the end, but the gift is nice enough that you're still glad to have received it despite the minor damage.

    Wish it possessed a little more of the epic scope and brutality of the novel but I suppose it's not really fair to judge it on those terms. Really well-cast though

    I probably had too high expectations.
    Additional 1/2 just because of Kevin Spacey.

    An excellent ensemble cast leads a thoroughly well-crafted and utterly enjoyable genre exercise.

    Still one of the best action movies.
    paramount main actors (in my eyes the best role Crow ever played).
