Ugh!
3 November 1998 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

The Last Days of Frankie the Fly is possibly the most overblown mess of a film produced this decade. Lacking coherent structure, decent acting, plot or direction, the whole thing rolls on for what seems like a lifetime whilst lurching from one shoddy scene to the next. Dennis Hopper acts against type but never convinces, Keifer Sutherland just shouts a lot (though he does get the best of what lines there are) and the rest of the cast look like they've stumbled onto the set and are looking for the fastest route out. Simply put, this film is a nightmare. Avoid.
