Great ideas, poorly exploited
16 July 2002 | by llippiSee all my reviews

The opening scenes are great. Then, suddenly you realise that the movie doesnt fly. Hard to say why: the plot was just great. It had all the right ingredients, including some interesting carachters, and a great Ben Gazzarra. But the movie at some point seems more a telefilm from the 80s than else. I hope one day somebody will pick up the script and remake this movie in a better way, showing more death, more hate, more sex, and more love, in one word more life. This has to be a movie to pounch stomachs and to hand out hugs and kisses at the same time. LLippi
