Goofs

The Coney Island Roller Coaster train is made of fiberglass, not wood, as a 1940s coaster train would be. Fiberglass was introduced commercially in 1936, but it was used mostly as insulation. It wasn't used for applications like roller coasters until well into the 1950's. See more »

not a bad sequel
30 November 2007 | by (sacramento, ca) – See all my reviews

sequels often disappoint and are often the poor relation of the first film. However, this is a very under-rated, well written and acted sequel. It had me guessing until the end and had me thinking about what happened several hours after it had ended, normally a good sign for me of a compelling, interesting movie. Completely different cast from the first film but there are no B-listers here. Sets were authentic for the 1940's too and in those days, low-level boxing bouts were ripe with tales of corruption and allegations of fighters taking dives on the whims of unscrupulous gamblers and the movie set the scene perfectly in my opinion. Ignore the low IMDb rating, its more significant for me that there are very few votes so in statistical terms, the sampling is too low. If you are after a cleverly done, fast moving tale about grifting and the art of the con that acts as a fine compliment to the original film, this ones for you!
