Can't really be objective when it comes to Cagney. He is my favorite actor.
Seems to be conflicting ideas on why this movie was made.
Some stating it is in response by Warner Bros. to the Hay's code, and others say that Cagney wanted to change his image from being a gangster.
I agree with the second one. He specifically left Warner Boros later for that very purpose.
Cagney in later years, when he gained more control over his career and left Warner Bros., included making "the time of our life" (that he bought the rights to produce) and his dancing movies where he proved he really preferred he did not like playing the bad guy gangster.
Even when he is playing a bad guy his underpinning character of a good guy always seems to peek through.
He does a great job of it in this movie, as usual, and I found myself really rooting for him as he plays the hero good guy.
Acting just doesn't get better, and they just don't make movies even remotely as good as this anymore.
Proves all the language, blood, and special effects of our day is just a poor excuse for bad writing and bad acting.

Cagney at the top of his game in this fast-paced, razor-sharp gangster thriller ably directed by longtime Cagney friend William Keighley. Surrounded by the Irish mafia at Warner Bros. of Robert Armstrong, Lloyd Nolan, Regis Toomey and Barton MacLane, the screen crackles with electric energy and nary a second could be cut as the script and pace are tight as a drum. Near 80 years old and this film is as fresh as if it were released last week. Cagney has rarely been better or more believable than he is here in G-Men. Superb, inventive cinematography, and this is one of the last Warner Bros. gangster films where they were still using "live" ammunition in some parts of the shootout scenes!

Lawyer Cagney becomes Gman Cagney for revenge. Very illustrative of 1930's crime and the FBI men who tried to rub it out. Parts of the action are representations of actual events. Great Cagney.

After solidifying his reputation as Hollywood's number-one bad guy, Cagney played a straight-edge lawman in this gangland drama, a huge hit for Warners and great publicity for J. Edgar Hoover's fledgling department, which had only recently granted officers the right to bear arms (a big plot point in the film). Cagney is mesmerizing as Brick, prudent and principled but also tough as nails and willing to throw his weight around. His two love interests, a bar-girl-gone-wrong (Ann Dvorak) and hospital nurse (Margaret Lindsay), land him in a tangle and also help amplify the theme of divided loyalties. Cagney is at his riveting, entertaining best in "G Men."

Pure propaganda with a lot of annoying moralizing, but mostly fun to watch. Public Enemy is twelve times better.
