  1. It's an amazing actor who can carry a movie by simply sitting calmly in a chair. That's what Christopher Walken does in the comedy-thriller Suicide Kings. He's so good, one hardly blinks.
  2. 75
    For those who aren't offended by extreme profanity and violence, Suicide Kings offers a kinetic and surprisingly funny two hours.
  3. Satisfying, unpretentious fun.
  4. The mixture of tension, yuks and horrific violence at times reminds one of nothing more than a poor man's "Pulp Fiction."
  5. Reviewed by: Tom Meek

    About the only thing suicidal in this lethargic crime drama is the convoluted script that wastes two fine performances by Christopher Walken and Denis Leary.
  6. What hip means in this uneven comic suspense film is maintaining the ironically distanced tone of a deadpan ''Married to the Mob'' or a tongue-in-cheek Coen Brothers caper.

    Suicide Kings has a witty cast, fun action and clever dialogue. Christopher Walken has a cool role as a mob boss and the movie is focused on him and other characters. The movie is similar to pulp fiction, it was deemed an imitator. If you don't mind a Tarantino esque crime drama with dark comedy then Suicide Kings is the perfect movie for you. Expand
