small time hustler
21 August 2002 | by (aberystwyth, wales) – See all my reviews

I own a UK copy of this title on VHS, so I've seen it several times many moons ago. A cheaply made small - time gangster/hustler movie which charts the rise of a young street kid into the underworld. This movie is actually quite easy on the eye and some scenes in New York and L.A. are well filmed showing a different aspect of both cities. The plot is pretty thin and the dialogue is corny. But it just about moves along at a satisfying pace. I'd give it 4 out of 10 (which s good for me!)
