Not bad little crime thriller
20 June 2001 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

Handgun is about as original as its title, but it benefits from a reasonably well written screenplay and a simply outstanding cast: really, how can you go wrong when you have Seymour Cassel, Frank Vincent, Luis Guzman, Treat Williams, Michael Imperioli, and Paul Schulze all in the same film? Predictable? yes. Enjoyable? Thoroughly. Mob movies fans need to catch this one.
