    There's no way I'd ever want to see this movie again.

    Ving Rhames is absolutely classic, and John Goodman and Tom Sizmore are great. Just be prepared for the film to be a bit depressing: one big night shoot.

    I tought it was mildly entertaining but the whole story of urban decay destroying someone to the brink of insanity still revites me to the core.

    I didnt understand this POS movie at all. Prepare yourself for alot of boredom if you decide to watch this movie. Tom Sizemore's character was cool though.

  1. Fans of the greatest working film director will be pleased.
  2. Develops microclimates of mood without fully developing the same shadings of character.

    The mood is less angst-ridden than hypercaffeinated, as Scorsese keeps cranking the velocity-bloodbath in the reggae inferno, exploding skyline pietà, climactic white light of redemption.
