Rolling Stone
It's a perversely comic movie ride into the wild blue of crime and punishment.

Variety
Tartly written and vividly performed by a fine ensemble cast, Gary Fleder's bracingly entertaining first feature covers familiar ground in a fresh, breezy way.

Colorful. [1 December 1995, p.D13]

On balance, I think it's an interesting miss, but a movie you might enjoy if (a) you don't expect a masterpiece, and (b) you like the dialogue in Quentin Tarantino movies.

ReelViews
More of a pretender than a contender in a field that includes superior entries like "Reservoir Dogs" and "The Usual Suspects."

Austin Chronicle
The movie features a very cool soundtrack and more hip lingo than two ears can absorb. But, like the air in Denver, this movie is spread awfully thin.
40
Largely vapid, borderline homophobic, and surprisingly treacly.
30
An overwrought gangster fable.
25
Has that title going for it, which might annoy or provoke you. It makes me suspicious. It's the kind of flashy, meaningless title that's usually given to drab, pointless films.
25
Things to do in the movie theater until you mercifully die of boredom sums up this witness' response to the ordeal of sitting through this movie.
