A great Indy film
1 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed with the depth of talent this small film was able to pull in. It's what gives this mafia movie a heart. While it doesn't have the shiny polished feel of a typical big budget studio film, it's a quality piece with solid talent and a good story at it's core. It's that Indy feel to it that should draw you to watch it in the first place. Making films is an incredibly hard thing to do, making good films is nearly impossible. Add to that little or no budget and you can just imagine how hard these guys worked to pull it off and, at least in my opinion, they did. If you're looking for a night in and want to add a little flavor to the evening this film is a great fit.
