Not a blockbuster, but outstanding performances!
27 August 2008 | by (Daytona Beach, United States) – See all my reviews

It's not hard to tell why this movie was not a blockbuster. Not a lot of special effects, fake blood, gun battles, car chases, etc. But the story is very, very good.

And make no mistake. William Petersen gives a performance that solidifies my opinion that he is one of the best American actors...EVER! When Al, the cop whose brother has gotten into trouble with the mob, goes to see Tony C., Petersen (who plays Tony C.) gives a five-plus minute soliloquy that, if you appreciate good acting, will give you chills! It is one of the best performances I have ever seen, and I will actually take the DVD, scroll to this point in the movie, and watch only this performance. There is only one flaw in the scene, and it is not Petersen's fault. At one point, he quickly stands up from a seated position and the camera man is too slow to follow him, so his head goes out of the shot. This should have been corrected in post-production with a cut-away, but it wasn't. Nevertheless, Petersen's performance is breathtaking, and anyone wanting to learn from a master of his craft should watch this movie, if for nothing else than this performance. If you think he's good in CSI, you ain't seen nothing' yet!
