This isn't as bad as i thought it would be.
6 October 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A low-level mob associate named Frankie (The late Dennis Hopper), who is actually good hearted and he is known for his inability to harm people, when he is assigned to collect debts for his low-life sleazy Gangster boss named Sal (Michael Madsen). When Frankie thinks, it is an good idea to write an movie. He asks an pathetic, often scared filmmaker named Joey (Kiefer Sutherland), who is directing porn for a living. He wants Joey to teach him the basics of filmmaking. But since Joey is in a bad debt with Sal, he wants Frankie to bet money for him at the race track to pay off his debts. Since Frankie thinks, it is an risky idea but at the same time, he is in love with an porn actress named Margaret (Daryl Hannah). Who has an tough time keeping off drugs.

Direvted by Peter Markle (Bat 21, Hot Dog...The Movie, Wagons East) made an sometimes, amusing dark comedy set in a harsh, violent world of crime. It is nice to see the late Hopper playing an sympathetic character in this movie. Almost every character are over the top but it is entertaining to see Sutherland as a nervous, long-suffering porn director. Although it was made for theaters, the movie made its debut on TV before being released on video.

DVD has an decent Pan & Scan (1.33:1) transfer and an good Dolby Stereo 2.0 Surround Sound. This DVD is a triple Gangster movie, along with "Abel Ferrara's The Funeral" and "The Immortals" with Eric Roberts, Tia Carrere and Tony Curtis. "The Last Days of Frankie the Fly" does have its moments with an nice performance by Hopper. It is certainly worth a look, thanks to him. Written by Dayton Callie (Who appears as Vic in the movie). Look for Adam Scott in a bit part, who shares an humorous sequence with Hopper. (****/*****).
