    While I like pieces of this individually, I find it hard to differentiate it as a whole from other film noirs. The tropes that make some people absolutely love this genre always make me feel like it's just very predictable, and there are only so many ways it can be told. So there's nothing wrong with it, but I'm not sure it stands out from the rest of the genre in a meaningful way. The most notable thing about it…

    The Asphalt Jungle is awesome. It is essentially the blueprint for every future heist film. Good shit.

    More realistic than many of its contemporaries, The Asphalt Jungle is a fun noir filled with fast talkers and hilarious twists and turns.

    A classic noir, heist film, the Asphalt Jungle is just distinctive enough to be memorable and contains just enough interesting characters to be engaging.

    Of the many things that are great about THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, surely the fact that there’s a character named DIX HANDLEY must be at the top of the list.

    The moral, psychological, and plot complexity of The Asphalt Jungle make it a very modern movie. As such, its influence can be seen in elements of a great many films.

    Asphalt Jungle is a stunning movie. Not only in the classic noir story it tells, but also in the depths it explores the motivations and feelings behind its characters.

    “Asphalt Jungle” has some fantastic shots that move characters like chess pieces into precisely the right locations for subsequent action. That and the fact that it’s a character-driven crime story makes this worth watching.

    The Asphalt Jungle is a very dramatic, effective crime film. The acting isn't always the best, but it's still a strong film that is about the characters, showing little action.

    "After all, crime is only a left-handed form of human endeavor."


    There may exist better heist films, but they absolutely owe much of their effectiveness and success to The Asphalt Jungle. Charged with drama, unscrupulous bottom feeders of "the dark city," and framed in a way that echoes German expressionism and Italian neorealism, The Asphalt Jungle is film noir to its rotten core. This is essential viewing.

    The Asphalt Jungle keeps its characters in as sharp focus as its visuals and stays as invigorating a heist/noir film as any could expect from the great John Huston.

    TCM’s Eddie Muller said it best: the heist film didn’t exist before The Asphalt Jungle. Perfectly cast, deliberately paced, and realistic to the very end.

    Arguably the most perfectly cast heist movie ever. Watching The Asphalt Jungle, you get the impression that everyone involved knew it was clicking because the confidence that this movie exudes is intoxicating.

    "The Asphalt Jungle" by John Huston is a trip to hell for a group of men who don't get the joke yet. You can't beat the law and you can never go home.
