Storyline

In the rail yards of Queens, contractors repair and rebuild the city's subway cars. These contracts are lucrative, so graft and corruption are rife. When Leo Handler gets out of prison, he finds his aunt married to Frank Olchin, one of the big contractors; he's battling with a minority-owned firm for contracts. Willie Gutierrez, Leo's best friend, is Frank's bag man and heads a crew of midnight saboteurs who ruin the work of the Puerto Rican-owned firm. Leo needs a job, so Willie pays him to be his back-up. Then things go badly wrong one night, a cop IDs Leo, and everyone now wants him out of the picture. Besides his ailing mom and his cousin Erica, to whom can Leo turn?

Great cast,mediocre movie,disappointing Wahlberg
8 March 2002 | by (Amsterdam,Holland) – See all my reviews

I expected a lot of this movie and I felt a bit cheated. All right,the reviews weren't that super but with an assembled cast like that,who could blame me. Joaquin Phoenix was great (after his superb role in Gladiator) but leading man Mark Wahlberg seemed a bit lost. Don't get me wrong! He's a fine actor and let's leave it like that. The "oldies" (James Caan,Faye Dunaway,Ellen Burstyn) left behind a good impression. I'll just end by saying that this ain't another Godfather or Goodfellas. Just a decent movie to watch on a rainy day. And ponder on the fact that in this movie the young generation have a lot to learn (including beautiful Charlize Theron) from the "oldies". Excluding Joaquin Phoenix,ofcourse.
