In the vein of the original, but SERIOUSLY entertaining parts are few and far between...
4 November 2001 | by (Melbourne) – See all my reviews

I did not really enjoy this movie. While the addition of Frank Thring and Gus Mercurio added a certain upbeat flavour to the film, it did little to suspend the film's monotonous tone which detracts highly from the prestige of the original. I also point to the degeneration of the film as soon as Alvin assumes his gangster persona.
