Goofs

In the scene with Nikolai, you hear Nikolai rack the slide, but the hammer is not back in the next shot. The camera then looks away (at Monty) and then back at Nikolai, and you can clearly see the slide is locked back and the gun is out of battery. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Monty Brogan: Look at this. He's alive.
Kostya Novotny: This dog, how you call it? Bull pit?
Monty Brogan: No, Pit-Bull. But that's not a pit bull. I don't know, I don't know what he is. I bet he lost somebody some money though. Give me your gun.
Kostya Novotny: Shooting him?
Monty Brogan: Yeah.

Best movie I've ever seen
20 September 2004 | by See all my reviews

Honestly it's the best movie I've seen in my 25 years. I've seen it a dozen times now, and I love it more every time. The plot is perfect, the acting is perfect, the cinematography is perfect. The ending segment with Monty and his father is about the most powerful I've ever seen.

So many unforgettable scenes in the movie:

  • Frank & Monty at the club the last night


  • The "make me ugly" scene


  • Monty and his dad in the car


If you haven't seen it, go get it right now. You can't miss this one.
