An ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggles to stand up to his corrupt union bosses. (IMDb) ( )
  DrLed | Nov 4, 2017 |
Dock workers are afraid to speak up against their murder-happy union.

Underneath all the exceptional writing and acting, at its heart it's still just a gangster movie. If Brando hadn't gotten his hands on that character it wouldn't have been anything special.
