Mediocre Crime Family Drama
18 April 2018 | by larrys3See all my reviews

This grade B-movie is not the worst crime family drama I've seen but it's not a particularly good one either. It's filled with cliched dialogue and a number of non-believable plot elements.

Some of the acting is solid especially from Michael Lerner, as the mob boss, Eva Tamargo as his wife, and Victoria Pavalka , as a waitress at their Italian restaurant who gets caught in the middle of mob business. There are some surprises along the way, a little humor ,and strangely some heavy moralizing on occasion.

To note, there were no English subtitles on the DVD copy I obtained from Redbox, so I had to use the closed caption option on my remote. Also, when the conversations were in Italian, there were subtitles but they were quite small.

All in all, don't expect a great deal from this film which has its occasional moments. Although as you might expect, one thing you can count on is plenty of violence and explicit language throughout.
