One thing rescues this chick flick -- a great gun scene
23 January 2006 | by (The Bit Cave) – See all my reviews

"Mafia Bride" is a chick flick with goombah costumes and sets. This pseudo tragedy presents a female lead on a course to get revenge for a parent, but she discovers she is marrying the murderer. (Yawn.) However, the hit man groom, played by Eric Roberts, has the energy to carry interest to the end of the of the film, no matter how much one despises chick flicks. The absolute highlight -- worth picking up a copy for, is his stunning performance of a perfectly choreographed shooting scene in a restaurant. (Whether it's Roberts or a stunt man is irrelevant.) I've watched a lot of Steven Seagal and others who are in movies that showcase the well trained fighter -- not the back-up to the title character in a movie obviously made for the romance *spit* *spit* story. Still, this scene was out of sight. Leaping, shooting, rolling, shooting.... you have to see it to begin to grasp it.

I wouldn't want to hear one of my knowledgeable fellow NRA members give it a critique -- but the artistry here was breathtaking.
