User Reviews

A fine performance by Danny Aiello lost in a sea of clichés.
13 October 1999 | by rbreenSee all my reviews

This was a disappointing film. Danny Aiello gives his usual fine performance, but the script foundered in a sea of Mafia clichés, lame sub-Tarantino dialogue, rambling and unnecessary voiceovers, and sophomoric speculations about religion.
