A former street tough returns to his Philadelphia home after a stint in the military. Back on his home turf, he once again finds himself tangling with the mob boss who was instrumental in his going off to be a soldier.
To begin with, the script is an amateur attempt at a movie. The directing is a bit stiff and mediocre. The attempt at a mystery ending fails lamely.
The production is poorly done, especially the audio which frequently over-peaks and causes voice distortion especially during outdoor verbal interactions. There is constant background "music" which amounts to pretty much noise and annoyance. Most of the dialog is fraught with echo from poorly placed audio microphones.
If the plot was at all intriguing or with proper development, this movie might have been fair to tolerable. But unfortunately for one of my favorites, Piper Perabo, the effort fails miserably.
