Critic Reviews of "Across 110th Street"
VarietyMarch 26, 2009
[Across 110th Street] is well-made, realistic in presentation and effect with uniformly good portrayals from actors, but depressingly lacking in a sympathetic focal point for audiences to grasp.
Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
It's a gutsy affair, given a distinct lift by the Harlem locations; and between the bouts of physical aggression, there are occasional moments of insight into the fraught relationship between Quinn and Kotto.
New York TimesMay 09, 2005
It manages at once to be unfair to blacks, vicious towards whites and insulting to anyone who feels that race relations might consist of something better than improvised genocide.
Chicago ReaderFebruary 17, 2002
Extremely seedy and violent, this 1972 feature by Barry Shear and cinematographer Jack Priestley makes extraordinary use of Harlem locations.
Blu-ray.comSeptember 27, 2014
Gritty and mindful of perspective, the feature is a bruising examination of power and desperation, filled with energetic chases and fiery confrontations.
PopMattersMay 24, 2014
Violence, especially violence at the expense of the black community, has seldom been more candidly dissected and critiqued in American film as it is in Across 110th Street.
TV GuideMay 23, 2014
Smartly edited with terrific location work in New York City. The dependable Kotto is a standout.
Radio TimesMay 23, 2014
Barry Shear's picture tries to be hard-edged and aim for realism, but doesn't always succeed.
ColeSmithey.comMarch 22, 2011
[VIDEO] As exaggerated as the violence appears, it is in keeping with the social climate of the time. No punches are pulled, and rightly so.
EmanuelLevy.ComDecember 20, 2010
One of the best actioners of the 1970s, this unpretentious film benefits from sharp editing, on-location shooting and strong acting.
Video-Reviewmaster.comMarch 14, 2009
Dated crime drama headed by top cast including Anthony Quinn.

Before studios insisted on an injection of sugary sentiment, this what what a New York cop thriller looked like.
