No-one Knows What It's Like to be the Bad Man....
27 December 2004 | by (New haven, ct, usa) – See all my reviews

Strange little flick... An attempt at the good bad guy genre, I guess. Like Goodfellas, or Mean Streets, or Fingers, or The Sopranos, or all the urban gansta flicks out these days...

Naomi Campbell was surprisingly good, I thought. Eric Thal seemed to be good, but for me his performance was terribly undercut by his having an uncanny resemblance to Steve Butabi in A Night at the Roxbury, complete with hairstyle and numerous facial expressions. A cinematic genius could probably cut both flicks together to make something comically horrifying. Otherwise, I didn't find any of the other bad guys too compelling, they were just vaguely psychopathic and repellent.

If you like this genre, highly recommend you dig up a copy of 'Fingers', the 1978 film by James Toback with Harvey Keitel. That one's a knockout.
