Why did they make this movie?
12 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There was nothing special about this movie. Dirty cops and mobsters and murdered prostitutes and crooked politicians have all be in many movies and at the same time. There just wasn't any reason for this movie to be made, especially considering that it was made so badly.

Austin Pendleton (A Beautiful Mind, The Notorious Bettie Page) was just about the most evil mobster I have ever seen. There just wasn't a good bone in his body. He seriously seemed to enjoy being evil. I have to admit he was fun to watch, but it still didn't make the movie worthwhile.

Georgian actress Nutsa Kukhianidze was also good and I fully intend to look for more of her films (The Good Thief, A Trip to Karabakh).

Tip for filmmakers: If your film is going to be crap and you are going to get an R rating, make it truly worth an R.
