Reviews

Former car thief Jimmy Kilmartin (David Caruso) ends up in jail after accompanying his cousin Ronny (Michael Rappaport) on a truck-stealing job. A cop, Calvin (Samuel L. Jackson), is wounded, and Jimmy takes the rap. While Jimmy is inside, Ronny is killed by gangster Little Junior (Nicolas Cage). When Jimmy is released, the District Attorney asks him to go undercover in Little Junior's club in an attempt to put Little Junior behind bars. Just to complicate matters, Jimmy's police 'minder' turns out to be none other than Calvin.

Format: DVD
Kiss of Death. This stylish 1995 crime thriller is based on the same story as the classic 1947 Hollywood film noir,of the same name. The 101 minute drama features an unusually star-laden cast, and, at a cost of $40 million, with returns of $14 million, was not judged a success.

David Caruso plays Jimmy Kilmartin an ex-con, caught red-handed during a heist, who tries to distance himself from his past upon his release and lead an honorable life. But he reluctantly agrees to help Ronnie Gannon, (Michael Rapaport, Terminator 3 / The 6th Day / Last Action Hero ), his loser cousin, with one last heist that goes wrong. He refuses to rat out his underworld pals, but turns stoolie after they renege on their promises to him. Coerced by Frank Zioli, (Stanley Tucci, The Hunger Games (2 Disc) , ), an ambitious prosecutor, he agrees to play the pawn in a police plot to bring down Little Junior Brown, (Nicholas Cage, Justice ), a psychotic gangster. Helen Hunt, As Good As It Gets , plays Jimmy's wife Bev; Samuel L. Jackson,Soul Men , plays Calvin Hart, an angry cop. Ving Rhames plays Omar, a psychotic Philadelphia-based mobster. Philip Baker Hall plays Big Junior Brown; Anthony Heald plays a fed. Comedienne Anne Meara plays Bev's mother.

Not a bad cast, and by and large, well-acted.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Kiss of Death is directed by Barbet Schroeder and collectively written by Ben Hecht, Charles Lederer, Eleazar Lipsky and Richard Price. It stars David Caruso, Nicolas Cage, Samuel L. Jackson, Helen Hunt, Ving Rhames, Stanley Tucci, Kathryn Erbe, Michael Rapaport and Anthony Heald. Music is by Trevor Jones and cinematography by Luciano Tovoli.

Reformed ex-con Jimmy Kilmartin (Caruso) reluctantly helps out his cousin transporting stolen cars but gets caught and ends up taking the fall for the whole caper. Back in prison and missing his wife and child, Jimmy gets offered a lifeline if he is prepared to go undercover with the police to bring down psychotic crime boss Little Junior Brown (Cage).

A loose remake of the excellent 1947 film noir of the same name, Schroeder's Kiss of Death is slightly better than the iffy reputation afforded it. Yes it's more solid than anything resembling truly compelling, but it wears its noir heart on its sleeve and is very well performed by an impressive cast.

Caruso's Kilmartin is a classic noir protagonist, a man who tries to go straight but gets dragged into a world of crime and shifty undercover machinations after doing one honest intention favour. From the point he agrees to help out Ronnie Gannon (Rapaport a jumping bean performance), he loses what he holds most dear and continually gets pulled from pillar to post by everyone around him. He's basically a good guy that fate has dealt a deadly hand, even when he gets a second chance at happiness it's not long before the door knocks and he's thrust into a deadly undercover game where he will be lucky to escape with his life intact.

This is a remake of an old movie, based along the same lines. Samuel L. Jackson plays a cop who makes David Caruso's ex-convict rat out on Nicolas Cage who plays this movies Gangster and does not like that at all. A great thriller, which deserves to be seen by everyone who loves movies. Samuel L. Jackson is great as the cop who needs Nicolas Cage's Gangster. BEWARE: Nicolas Cage models a very dodgy beard!!!!

This was the first film starring David Caruso which I purchased, and what a brilliant film it is. Trying to go straight and raise a family the character is forced back into a life of crime in order to protect his friends who are threatened by a gang. He serves time in prison, again, spells in hospital having been beaten up, loses his wife to a road accident and yet retains his standards and starts a new life with his second family away from the fray of gang culture and the city.

This isn't the great film it could have been, but it has some great acting and powerful scenes. It's worth watching for the quality acting, but the pace is far too slow.
