Awesome character study
4 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Every time this movie is on TV I always watch at least part of it. The gripes people said about this movie are...

No action: There was certainly more action than The Godfather, another mob movie.

No plot: Did you watch the friggin' movie, or do you find it hard to follow movies like Toy Story?

Don't know about the characters: The whole movie is a study on the disparate personalities of the three. What don't you know?

Don't believe the negative reviews of a movie like this. If graphic violence or strong language doesn't bother you then watch this movie the next time it's on the movie channel or rent it sometime. Also, could someone explain to me, what's up with the obvious dubbing over some of Adam Baldwin's profanity? This is even on the unedited video version of the movie. The movie already had an R rating. Were they trying to clean it up a little? Watch carefully whenever Tate is swearing at Travis and you'll see what I'm talking about.
