Storyline

An ex-cop supervises the destruction of corporate bonds redeemed by a New Jersey bank. He plans to steal small amounts of the paper from each shipment without raising suspicion and have a small- time fence from his old neighborhood find a buyer for the stolen bonds. The local mob boss, angry because he is not cut in on the deal, has the 'fence' brutally murdered. He orders his hitman to eliminate the out-of-town buyers and find the 'inside' man. Tom is abducted by the buyers and persuaded to pull off a large scale theft of bonds. He asks help from another ex-cop, his former rookie partner. Tom is killed in a botched exchange and Jimmy and Tom's daughter, DIANE agree to complete the deal and get the men responsible for Tom's death. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
Jimmy Vero: [voiceover] My dad always used to say things like "I wonder what's around that corner" or "Hey Jimmy, what d'ya think's at the end of that road?". Yeah, when I was a kid people used to talk like that, used to say those kinds of things, er, just everyday expressions they used. They never really asked themselves, "What's at the end of the road?". When I was a kid I figured people just didn't worry about those things and that made me sad I guess... still does.

Terrific - a first class production.
4 November 2002 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

An Awesome movie! If you liked Deniro, Casino, Pacino, Goodfellas etc? You gotta see this independent production! Its terrific in terms of plot development, character stylization and production values. Vincent is great as he was in Casino and Pastore is as you would expect, precursor to his Big Pussy on the Sopranos.
