(1935)4Hans J. WollsteinFormer screen hoodlum James Cagney may be on the side of law and order in G-Men but he is really the same old cocky Jimmy, still refusing to take guff from anyone and still with that certain bounce in his step. And Warner Bros. certainly doesn't skimp on ammunition and falling bodies this time around either. In fact, G-Men has one of the noisiest slam-bangs of a shootout this side of Bonnie and Clyde, and with plenty of gun-molls getting in on the action to boot. Sirens are blaring and cop cruisers careen into buildings with abandon as Jimmy becomes one of J. Edgar Hoover's boys and once again leaves poor downtrodden Ann Dvorak to pick up the pieces, so to speak. Ann is eventually gunned down in cold blood by nasty gangster Barton MacLane, leaving Cagney free to take up with the more upscale Margaret Lindsay. In other words, not much has changed from the good old Pre-Code days of wanton crime and that is just as it should be.
