After reading this novel i had high expectations, and the film exceeded all of them. It might not be a great adaption, buts its a magnificent movie that's even better than the book. Plus this is the first movie where Russell Crowe defined himself as the Aussie bad boy we all know and love

A masterpiece. An extraordinary and magnificent flick. A marvelous and very enjoyable mystery. It's vintage edge of your seat excitement. It entertains in a classy and uniquely impressive way. It delivers terrific performances all around. Kevin Spacey is brilliant. Russel Crowe is a knockout. Guy Pearce is terrific. Kim Basinger is marvelous. James Cromwell is excellent. It's a total powerhouse. Movies don't get any better than this. Excellent entertainment. One of the best crime dramas in years. It packs a solid mixture of suspense, humor, romance, gun-play and great detective storytelling. Terrifically tense and relentlessly exciting. It's first-rate. Sizzling, sexy, dazzling, explosive and exhilarating. A pulse-pounding and adrenaline-pumping crime-drama.

A great movie and a very interesting neo-noir look. It has a great ensemble cast and intersecting story lines like most of James Ellroy's other crime epics. What sets this apart from a lot of other nostalgia pieces is that it completely nails the feel of the time period. It's somehow more light-hearted and melodramatic than a modern adaption would have been.
