Tacky fifties delinquent support.
18 January 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Unconvincing handling wipes out the potential of this piece with high schooler Sparks finding the mob loot and picturing a better life than his missile making dad has achieved. The run down Grand Canal community sharply filmed in black and white is the one surviving asset.
