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.

Yikes!
8 April 2004 | by (NoVa) – See all my reviews

Grew up and lived in West New York, NJ, and bought this DVD in hopes of finding a pretty good film with personal historical references for me. Not so. Seems they filmed from Weehawken (not West New York), showing the pre-9/11 NY skyline, but that was the high point.

I'm sorry, but the acting, aside from Vincent Pastore, was wooden or unconvincing. The dialogue is rife with the usual "F" expletives, the relationships are all over-wrought, the plot circuitous and irrational, the characters inconsistent ( what's with Frank Vincent cowering, his hands held up in acquiescence as 2 light weight thugs try to scare him? Wasn't this guy an ex-cop?) The "spirituality" of the guitar playing customer is insubstantial and seems more based in the man's past drug abuse than supernatural insight ("be careful!") OMG this is a real stinker!

Moment to remain agog at: the fight scene with Brian Burke and the 4-ton Italian mobster/gorilla is nuts, with a death match ensuing a "don't you touch me," ' "Oh yeah?!" quarrel. Gimmee a Break! As we Jersey-ans say, "fuh-gedd-aboud-dit!" Stick with "Union City," one town south of West New York. At least you get Debbie Harry! Or get down to the Jersey shore with "Atlantic City," as interpretted by Louis Malle.

Ah'm oudda hee-ah. See yuh.
