Storyline

Michael 'Mike' Turner is handsome, bright, a resourceful law student and perfect gentleman. Mike were perfect hadn't he been born in late 20th century Brooklyn, a New York borough dominated by the mob, in his case Carmine Mancuso, who luckily chooses to protect bright Mike, even against mob ruffian Gino, and his two inseparable buddies. Cocky Carmine Mancuso actually chooses to join the bloody business, sparing only his youth friends. Third mate Bobby Canzoneri, whose equally dumb parents hosted the gang as kids, naively aims no higher then tenure in the US Post. Yet Bobby ends up dead when a mob war erupts.

Freddie Prinze Jr. KILLED this film
22 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen acting this bad since Showgirls!! Freddie Prinze Jr.'s accent was horrible! His delivery made B list soap stars chuckle out loud.

Beyond the aforementioned display of ineptitude the movie needs help...its beyond bad. The story is weak. The dialog is unoriginal and banal. Jerry Ferrara has a decent scene or two, namely the ring scene but aside from that the remaining hour and twenty nine minutes is pure hell on tape.

I recommend you watch it just to see how bad acting really can be. Pay particular attention to FPJ, and try not to feel bad for him...its hard.
