Product Description

Drama inspired by actual events. Tommy Santoro (James Marsden) was just a boy when his father, a high-ranking member of the Philadelphia mafia, was murdered. Tommy grew up determined to stay on the right side of the law, but his brother Vincent (Brad Renfro) and cousin Joey (Giovanni Ribisi) had other ideas and Tommy ended up joining 'the family business'. Tommy enlists in the Army and serves in Operation Desert Storm, but when he impulsively steals a jeep, he is arrested by the military police. However, Tommy finds he's not questioned by MPs, but by Horvath (Brian Dennehy), an FBI agent who knows all about his past and family history. Horvath has learned that Sicilian mobsters have been taking over the Philly rackets, and persuades Tommy to join up with Vincent and Joey in order to infiltrate the Mafia and serve as an informant to the FBI.

4.0 out of 5 stars 10th and Wolf... 14 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
Director Robert Moresco who directed Crash brings to the screen this tale of friendship, family and honour, which starts with the James Marsden character Tommy sitting in a Jeep while he is serving as a marine, realising that war is futile and what's life all about.

In the process of returning to the streets of Philadelphia where he grow up and finds himself having to deal with the Mob boss who was the reason for him joining the military in the first place, and he finds that his childhood friend is running the streets and corner that they had grow up on he also finds that his younger mentally challenged brother Vincent is working as the manager of the local strip club which is owned by his best boyhood friend Joey played by Giovanni Ribisi, who has appeared in such films as Public Enemies and more recently Avatar.

The DVD is presented in 2.35:1 aspect and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound

5.0 out of 5 stars 10th & Wolf 4 Sep 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an exciting and dramatic film with excellent performances, especially from James Marsden, Giovanni Ribisi and Brad Renfro. The supporting cast are very good too and the various plot turns maintain interest, particularly in a tense situation near the end. The soundtrack is fine and the photography exceptionally good.

The only slight problem is the rather muddled programming of the disc menu. In common with many discs nowadays, the first thing to appear is a handful of trailers through which you can fast-forward, but when you get to the main menu screen you discover that the default sound setting is stereo. If you wish to select the dolby 5.1 option for surround sound, you will need to press "audio options" and select it. If you then press "resume" as you would normally do, you get taken straight back to the copyright warning and the opening trailers all over again! Once back on the film menu screen, you'll find that it's reverted to stereo - and so it goes on!!!

Instead, after selecting dolby 5.1, choose "main menu" - then press "play film" and it will do what you wish.

This film is a must for James Marsden fans and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who has enjoyed "The Sopranos" or similar mob dramas.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why? 10 July 2007
Format:DVD
I watched this film on it's own merits, it has one of my favourite actors in Giovanni Ribisi. It's well, just plain terrbile, it's only redeeming feature is Ribisi, he carries the film on his back at times it shows.

It's a very average story told very averagely. The film dragged and dragged. If you're going to tell a story like this up the tempo, but they didn't.

It was a very big waist of time, for all concerned, when the credits popped up with Hopper and Kilmer as well, I nearly laughed the combined onscreen time of both of them is probably about 4 minutes, Kilmer only has one line.

Don't bother, watch it when it's on TV, but don't stress about letting this one pass you by!

1.0 out of 5 stars The Sopranos! NOT 30 Jun 2008
Format:DVD
One of the worst mob movies I have ever seen. The lead, Tommy( James Marsden ) is immediately forgettable, and his brother and cousin,( Vincent and Joey ) look like they couldn't hold down a McJob, let alone exploit organised crime. A couple of average brief cameos from Dennis Hopper and Val Kilmer, which must have paid the gas bill, and a larger! part for Brian Dennehy who still looked like he regretted banging up Rambo all those years ago.
And there you have it, a fractured mundane plot, characters you will not care about and at 15.99 at Amazon, fugedaboutit!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bullet Ballet 10 Oct 2006
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"10th & Wolf" is a crime drama that keeps your attention. James Marsden who came on my radar screen with the last season of TV's "Ally McBeal" and then played in the 3 X-Men films, "Bobby," and a good sleeper "Gossip" leads as Tommy Santoro, a soldier dishonorably discharged and then made to go undercover with the Mafia, a past he's been trying to forget. Unfortunately his brother Vincent has stayed close to their roots. Played by Brad Renfro whose first film in 1994 was "The Client" and recently appeared in "The Jacket," Vincent is a dim-witted by good-hearted gangster. Their cousin Joey is played by Giovanni Ribisi who has starred in a number of films including "The Gift," "Cold Mountain," & "Gone in 60 Seconds." Giovanni plays the ruthless gangster who has more bullets than brains. Leo Rossi does an excellent job as the sleazy cop Thornton. While he doesn't get much screen time, he does have producer billing and his icy stares are enough to chill the tropics. Brian Dennehy plays the other wheeler-dealer cop Horvath who ropes Tommy into wearing a wire. Lesley Ann Warren does a nice job as the vulnerable Aunt Tina who is half alcoholic, half nymphomaniac. Dennis Hopper has a good cameo as Matello, a godfather type. Val Kilmer comes & goes rather quickly as Murtha, a drunken barfly. Riding high on his Oscar for Best Screenplay for "Crash," this was Bobby Moresco's directorial debut. The film is shot very dark, which seems to give it a gothic feel as much as that of a crime drama. There is a hefty body count and a bullet ballet to conclude the film. This film goes down easy, even if it tends to evaporate soon after viewing. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid character acting shines through loose storytelling 20 Sep 2006
By P. Loera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a solid film.

It doesn't have the calibre of acting from "Donnie Brasco", but it is acted well. Especially, from Brad Renfro and Val Kilmer. (Kilmer for less than 5 minutes, but who cares?)

From flashbacks to double-crosses, it is easy to follow. Aside from an obviously overzealous pyro tech, it hardly falters.

Given another 15 minutes to the film and another 10 mil. to the budget and this would have been a gem.

Do not look past this movie, it's more than a gangster flick.

4.0 out of 5 stars ALL-IN-ALL NOT BAD, BUT WITH SOME APPARENT FLAWS 27 Aug 2006
By Anton Ilinski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Although "10th and Wolf" is not a bad movie I was a bit disappointed. Since it's based on the same story as "Donnie Brasco" I was expecting something as intense and breathtaking as Mike Newell's film. And I have to say "Donnie Brasco" was more thorough and more thought-provoking than "10th and Wolf".

It starts as Tommy (James Marsden) returns to Philadelphia from the army and he's having a deal with FBI to be an inside man in his cousin Joey's (Giovanni Ribisi) gang which has some business with mafia. Federals will be able to catch some bigger fish and Tommy will get a chance to save his younger brother Vince (Brad Renfro) and Joey from going to jail. So Tommy who never wanted to join the local gang starts having business with his friends and wears a wire.

That's the basic story-line, but what I liked here was not this "undercover agent" plot but relationships between the main characters. Tommy who hasn't been home for some years begins to build his relations with his cousin, his brother, old friends and aunt - and all that looks rather interesting and vivid mostly due to the good actors taking part in the feature. The cast in "10th and Wolf" is indeed very nice. Marsden is surprisingly good, I never expected such a credible performance from him. Ribisi is awesome as always, he's full of energy, he's vigorous and a little bit mad. Renfro is also very good, he's almost always authentic albeit overacting sometimes. Piper Perabo is quite believable as a single mother and Tommy's love interest although we never get to see any love scenes in the movie. I can also mention Lesley Ann Warren whom I adore, actually I can't remember a role she was bad at. And Brian Dennehy with Leo Rossi were OK as two federal agents. What I disliked or rather was distracted with were the cameos of Val Kilmer, Dennis Hopper and Tommy Lee. Hopper was the only one to get a sort of a real part in "10th and Wolf", but generally it looked like big names were used just to attract attention to the movie although they appeared on screen for 10 minutes altogether.

Robert Moresco whose latest achievement was a screenplay for "Crash" did a nice writing and directing job here, but throughout the whole film I've felt something's missing. First it seemed to me "10th and Wolf" happened to be smaller than I thought it would be. It lacked some calibre. Or maybe some things seemed strange to me. Or maybe I had some doubts. Here they are:
1. I doubt the gangs are usually consist of 5-6 persons. I thought of some bigger number. But in "10th and Wolf" it looks like the local gang really IS 5 people.
2. I doubt a leader of the gang can be that young. Well, Giovanni Ribisi looks rather young especially after Dennis Hopper who was the head before.
3. I doubt top mob members participate in everything their crew does, from negotiating to killing someone, they must have some apprentices.
4. I doubt just two feds are handling the case of undercover agent and some mafia family. Obviously there's some other people, but here it sometimes seems that FBI is two persons only.
5. I doubt a person who messed with a mob boss and then blackmailed two back-alley feds can walk away from this easily instead of being whacked by mobsters or corrupted feds.
6. I doubt a mob boss would torture and kill someone in HIS OWN house where he lives, where his wife is waiting for him in an upstairs' bedroom.
7. I doubt two persons, even armed, can easily intrude the mafia's boss house (who knows they can attempt to do it) killing all the resistance.

I had some other doubts but I guess you got the idea. I read people from Philadelphia saying the film really captured the city's spirit. I don't live there so it's not up to me to judge, but if to sum it all up I've seen better: from "A Bronx Tale" to "The Sopranos". But with all my doubts there clearly are some positive things about "10th and Wolf". Nice story, directing and acting - I think that's quite enough, and as for several flaws - I sincerely think there are no movies without them. Maybe here they just stick out too evidently.

2.0 out of 5 stars The old neighborhood in..Pittsburgh?! 27 Nov 2007
By Patty - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a moderately entertaining and acceptably acted film that, as mentioned before, has some credibility holes, both small ( a real Marine would laugh at the way the main character holds his gun ), and large ( if it was that easy to assault a mob boss's mansion, we'd ALL be kingpins ). Dennis Hopper fans should be warned that he appears for all of 10 seconds. As an honorary Philly boy, though, I should point out that, in order to 'capture the spirit' of a city, it helps if you actually shoot the film there..aside from the vocal accents being wrong, the exteriors were obviously done in Pittsburgh, Boston, or some other old NE city..I don't usually see foothills when I look north on Broad Street(!), and they could have at least painted the "SEPTA" bus white, even if they didn't have a copy of the logo..all in all, you'll have more fun watching a few episodes of "The Sopranos"..( exept the "Pine Barrens" episode; obviously shot at Delaware Water Gap! It's like real estate, people - location, location,..etc.! )

3.0 out of 5 stars 10th and Wolf, a action packed movie 5 Jan 2007
By Larry J. Stevens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
10th and Wolf is an action packed, bloody movie. If the sight of fake blood is not your tea, better pass. However, the movie, is well written and very well acted. The cast included several well known personalities and each brings quality acting to the screen. But, it does show multiple ways to kill people. The film is interesting for those that live in Pittsburgh as a large part was filmed in and around the Pittsburgh area (Wholley, various bridges, Hartwood Acres, etc. Also the movie will be interesting to those following the Donnie Barasco type of script.
