Really enjoyed this movie
2 November 2002 | by (PHiladelphia, Pa) – See all my reviews

Movie had a lot going for it. The actors were well cast especially Sal M, (the actor playing Frankie) The characters were lovable and well developed. My girlfriend actually got sad when certain characters were harmed. There was some good humor as well.

The plot was interesting and was solid throughout the movie. There was violence like most mob movies, though I have to say I thought this movie used it better than most. The action itself was interesting and well choreographed for the most part.

I liked the ending and the music was good too. Best mob movie I've seen in a long while.
