Just as good as Tarentino
23 May 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

I had to wait for the credits to see that it wasn't a Quentin Tarentino script. Denis Leary and Joe Mantegna were great. I would have liked more dialog for Joe, but it kept you wondering "what is going on in his mind", juxtapositioning the constantly-chatty, but not really saying anything Leary. I base my picks on whether I was entertained or not, rather than looking for messages or with a "critic-intelligensia" eye. I was entertained wholly by this movie and gave it a 10.
