Quotes

Rudolph W. Giuliani: [first lines - fade in] ... is not by any means the full sum and total of the FBI and the police department's efforts here. As has been outlined before, a couple of hundred mafia and organized crime members and associates have been indicted in the last year to two years, so that the attack is at the top level, the middle level, and the lower level. And we are doing everything that we can to identify, indict and convict, uh, the capos, the soldiers, and the associates of the mafia as well.

I have to say that Vin Diesel isn't anything like I expected him to be in this role. He did an amazing job.
16 March 2006 | by (Jersey City, NJ) – See all my reviews

I went to a screening in NYC this week, and Vin's performance knocked the socks off of everyone in attendance.

The physical transformation was astonishing. He gained a lot of weight for this role, and many of the people around me (myself included) did not recognize him when he first appeared on screen. While watching the film, I totally forgot that I was watching Vin Diesel. He really became the character for me.

Annabella Sciorra is another actor I will never look at the same way again. She had exactly one scene in the movie and I thought the screen was going to burst into flames or something. It was really that hot. She and Vin barely touched each other ... didn't even so much as kiss ... and I swear the entire audience needed a cigarette afterward.

The entire cast was first-rate. Every single one of them hit the ball out of the park, no exceptions.

The 2+ hours of running time went by like 15 minutes, and I sincerely did not want the movie to end.

There was a Q&A session after the screening, and Vin was humble, funny, personable and sometimes boyish in his interactions with the audience.

I wasn't a big Vin fan before this movie, but now I can't wait to see him in Hannibal. This guy isn't just an action star ... he's a very talented, dedicated and capable actor.
