Two thumbs way up!
11 July 2004 | by yjkSee all my reviews

A slick film with a visual style from a first rate director. The performances are good, especially Justin Louis as "Duke" and Peter Ornorati as "Charlie." Tamara Braun of "General Hospital" fame shows she's more than a soap opera queen as "Jenny." The relationship between the "Romano Brothers" is believable and moving. Ron Cosentino directs the film at a fever pitch and his use of imagery and locations (shot throughout the streets of Hollywood and L.A.) makes this an enjoyable viewing experience. Honorable mention is given to veteran actress Karen Black as the hard working waitress mother of the Romano's whose dreams for her boys are drowned in her barfly persona. Carmine Giovinazzo is also good in the lead as Frankie Romano. I hope to see more films from Cosentino in the future.
