Greetings again from the darkness. After seeing a few of the chick flicks that are currently dominating the cinema, I was looking forward to a little testosterone. Relative newcomers Brian Koppelman and David Levien co-wrote and co-directed this little mob film. Barry Pepper ("Saving Private Ryan" and "61") does an admirable job in his first attempt at carrying a movie. He does get some nice assistance from Seth Green ("Austin Powers" movies) and Vin Diesel, Tom Noonan, Dennis Hopper and John Malkovich. Vin Diesel is surprisingly impressive in the second half of the film where he actually gets to act. Tom Noonan ("Manhunter") provides another creepy character for his resume. Dennis Hopper has very little screen time, and thankfully, the directors keep his close-ups to a minimum. John Malkovich provides some veteran acting stability, but at times, seems to dare Pepper to stay in the shot with him. Overall, interesting, though simple, story that supposedly addresses the lack of loyalty among friends - even in the mob world.
