Gran cinta apologética sobre las virtudes del FBI. Un Cagney eléctrico y contundente -y con un fino sentido del humor lo largo del metraje- muy bien apoyado por los infalibles secundarios del Hollywood clásico. Buenas escenas de acción -el tiroteo en el garaje o el del hotel- secas y potentes. Dotada de un montaje hábil y brioso, se pasa volando. Recomendada!23 febrero 2018 (Editado)

"It's the early days of the F.B.I. - federal agents working for the Department of Justice. Though they've got limited powers - they don't carry weapons and have to get local police approval for arrests - that doesn't stop fresh Law School grad Eddie Buchanan from joining up, and he encourages his former roommate James "Brick" Davis (James Cagney) to do so as well. But Davis wants to be an honest lawyer, not a shyster, despite his ties to mobster boss McKay, and he's intent on doing so, until Buchanan is gunned down trying to arrest career criminal Danny Leggett. Davis soon joins the "G-Men" as they hunt down Leggett (soon-to-be Public Enemy Number One) and his cronies Collins and Durfee, who are engaged in a crime and murder spree from New York to the midwest.
