Same moral lesson as in The Public Enemy - and probably as in any of the Warner gangster flicks in the era: crime is bad, all who take the sword perish by the sword sort of a thing. Contrived, forced and naive writing. Over-acting at parts. Quite boring really, and rushed - again much like The Public Enemy - but with such a run time you can't ask for more. The characters are one-dimensional and predictable for the most part, in comparison with TPE where the writing was so much better.

The script and performances are far from flawless but "Little Caesar" remains a pretty enthralling piece of early noir. It definitely has the traits of the archetypal gangster film: the action, the shoot-outs, the rise and the fall, the allegory on power and ambition. Even though we've seen better films of this kind since, "Little Caesar" still is a pleasant watch, 85 years on, despite its weaknesses.

Like other 1931 films, it struggles with the sound and pacing, making for a stagy feel that is at odds with the energetic content and a story that is rushed but still feels drawn out. Despite all this a good lead performance and some memorable scenes make it pretty enjoyable.

I'm surprised no other users have mentioned the heavily-implied homoromantic relationship between Rico and Otero. I mean, the film even goes so far to have a scene of the two of them discussing business while lying together in a bed and staring into each others eyes while Rico is half-dressed. Rico even admits multiple times throughout the movie that he isn't interested in women. Caesar Bandello, first queer Hollywood Protagonist? Or is that just me reading too much into things?

The script's quite flat and the acting generally pretty hammy, but despite this it's still an enjoyable watch and Edward G. Robinson's an engrossing presence throughout, even if his delivery is totally hackneyed at times.

The subjective shots of Robinson and Fairbanks in the climactic moment make the film, as LeRoy uses close-up shots of the actors and a transition from clear to blurred vision in an effective and expressive fashion. The entire final segment is solid as well, laced with atmosphere and bitter ironies. That said, the film plays in a clunky, we're-still-learning-to-make-talkies style that chops up the flow. Also, Fairbanks' character should function as more of a counterpoint to Robinson's

Edward G. Robinson doing what he does best. Being a loudmouth not to be messed with. I must admit I prefer "The Public Enemy (1931)" of the two legendary '31 gangster flicks. But this still is an important movie to catch as Robinson is excellent as always. Felt Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was more uneven. Wish they'd handled the love bits with Glenda Farrell with a little more care because that was the weak part. As for the gangster stuff. Solid. Not too violent, but getting the message across nicely.

This is a well made early mob movie. Edward G. Robinson is great in the title role. This is not as good as some of the James Cagney mob movies but still enjoyable.

A good performance by Edward G.Robinson is all that this film has going for it.The plot is undeveloped and rushed,the characters are one dimensional and the dialogue is awful.

There's nothing really profound about the story, the chain of events seems rushed and it's kinda corny at times. But I found a certain textbook charm about some of the cliched dialog and characters. And there's also another glorious quality to this film which can be explained with one name: Chief Wig- er, I mean Edward G. Robinson. His is a unique, compelling presence that glues your eye to him every moment he's on the screen. An unforgettable performances from a very interesting actor.

Robinson is fun as the ruthless, sneering villain, and the pacing is decent, but feels kind of hokey now, especially since Rico's rise and fall feels very rushed and perfunctory.
