If You Like The Sopranos, You'll Probably Like This
6 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a borderline 8 movie. I don't really have a lot of criticism, but it lacks most of the ingredients required for a 9 or 10 - meaning something special.

There was really no one particular thing special about it - and the ending was not surprising but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

I thought the acting was very good - gritty and intense. This movie kind of reminded me of The Sopranos, though I liked the latter a lot better. Not too much to say. You have to accept a lot of language and violence (and I mean VIOLENCE) - blood and guts. But, if you can get over that, settle in for a reasonably good movie.
