The Reviews for Vice Raid (1959) 1080p

Also Take on the SyndicateReviewed bygavin6942Vote: 7/10

A vice detective goes up against a call girl (Mamie VanDoren) and loses in court. But once unemployed, the cop starts handling investigations his own way.

I really liked this film. As a historian who focuses on organized crime, I liked the idea of the "octopus" and "syndicate" without the film having to say Mafia or resorting to Italian-American stereotypes. While the Mafia probably was the dominant force at this time (the 1960s), they were hardly alone.

The subject matter was also handled really well. Although the story centers on prostitution, it was done in a clean manner -- no sex, no nudity, no vulgar language. There were some slinky outfits, but nothing racy. Today, I doubt they could make this film without plenty of sex in it, and I much prefer this version. I liked it even more because of the narration.

A fair to middling crime caper form the late 1950sReviewed bysecondtakeVote: 5/10

Vice Raid (1960)

A sensational topic, some steamy jazz, and the gritty big city. Could be good, I think. And it starts with a bang and a twist.

But it does not keep its high level of surprise and suspense, and it never quite forms a convincing plot The center of it is a vice squad, which is a police unit that investigates what are moral crimes like prostitution and, in the old days, things like homosexuality. The units are much revised (luckily) from the days in the mid-Twentieth Century when they would do raids on gay bars and suspicious clubs with back rooms, you get the idea.

I watched this very B-movie look at a vice squad in an unnamed city (let's say it's Cleveland) partly for the photographer, Stanley Cortez, who has some classics to his credit, yet even the photography is routine. The actors, and the acting, isn't bad, and they generally are fitting for the plot, which does keep interesting if a bit stiff all along.

It starts with a well used omniscient voice-over that makes it a pseudo-documentary. And the first part of the movie is a straight up story of a cop going after prostitution in town. And then things go wrong. And then, in a fun shift, the prostitute becomes a main character and her sweet little sister comes to town. This gives things another dimension, and if not exactly any more convincing, it's a welcome layer.

Eventually the tables turn again, and we see law enforcement do a clever job breaking up a syndicate. I don't think this makes for great watching--and for 1960 it feels very old, as if the director hasn't noticed the times both in the movies and in television have changed.

Despite a low budget, this is a pretty good crime flickReviewed byMartinHaferVote: 7/10

"Vice Raid" is a very good cop film with mostly little-known actors--apart from Mamie Van Doren. It's the story about an unnamed city's vice squad--one in which much of the force is on the take to the mob. However, one cop isn't on the take and isn't afraid of the crooks--and because of that, Mr. Big has decided to ruin him. So, using some help he imported from another city, he uses Carol Hupdson (Van Doren) and the cop's own partner to lie about his to internal affairs. Next thing you know, he's off the force--and itching for revenge. And what finally helps the now ex-cop in his crusade against the gangs? Carol's little sister is the key. How exactly it all works out is for you to see for yourself.

While this film lacks a huge budget and big-name stars, it makes up for it with tough dialog and a nice little story. The bottom line is that for an inexpensive noir film, it delivers the goods and is worth your time.
