Outstanding...
17 March 2003 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

What a great movie.. Tom Sizemore did a star display of his character and i think the rest of his family in this movie was great too.. I really think forest whitaker is one of the best actors in the world... I think he is a pure genious in the acting business.. The music was great in this movie too but the acting Tops it off.
