Storyline

February, 1991. Tommy, a Desert Storm marine dismayed that the US isn't taking out Saddam, breaks some rules and faces hard labor. An FBI agent offers him an out: go home to his gritty, dockside home in Pennsylvania and help get the goods on an Italian heroine dealer; in return, no prison time and no arrest of Tommy's brother Vincent and cousin Joey. Loyalty to family conflicts with loyalty to the code of the street. Can Tommy sort it out, protect his brother and cousin, and stay true? Do young men die - in the sands of the Middle East and on the mean streets of the US - for no reason? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

In some European countries a film title was simply changed to The Streets of Philladelphia on TV & in the cinemas without realising the fact that was too similar to the already existing title of a completly different film with Tom Hanks back in 1993. See more »

Goofs

They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
31 May 2007 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Basic story here is one of situational ethics.This is the kind of thing that the right-wing nut-jobs on radio and TV decry except when it is used to do things like fight drugs or find terrorists.

In this movie James Marsden plays a returning Desert Storm vet that got in trouble and is used by the government (Brian Dennehy & Leo Rossi) to rejoin his brother and friend (Giovanni Ribisi and Brad Renfro) to infiltrate the Philadelphia mob and bring down the drug lord. Torture and murder are government-approved for this purpose.

Marsden and Ribisi do excellent jobs here, and this is the best work I have seen by Piper Perabo. It even has a cameo by Tommy Lee, which would have been much better is it was Pamela instead.
