Brighton Rock

*plot spoiler* - look away now!

Note to baddies. When fighting someone on your back, do not get out your bottle of acid to fling in your assailant's face, because it will only drip back down into your own face, (this is known as the law of gravity) leading you to scream in self-afflicted agony then stagger blindly off the edge of the cliff to your death. In this version, Pinkie dies of stupidity. ARCHCRIMINAL FAIL.

Short review: Adaptations of original Graham 'godlike' Greene material not strictly necessary. Not as good as Richard Attenborough-era Brighton Rock. Of course.
