Format: DVD
This Film even though fairly poor from my favourite actor at a young age is nothing more than bad and only for hard core De Niro fan's like me !.
But this isn't the real film as intended ?.
The Original cut is called " Sam's song 1969 " After that It was cut and called " The Swap " & then " line of fire " if you watch them all you will see that the story has changed from the 1s't to the last.
Conclusion buy this you need to go back and get the other two so that when and if you get " The Swap " Then " Sam's Song " The Original " " You will be bored anyway. Oops i ment see the difference !.

An early role for the great Robert De Niro, Although he gets killed quite early in the film its shows glimpses of great actor he has become.

Worth a look if your a fan

Probably the worst DVD ever produced 3 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
Wow, where to start? Pretty much everything about this DVD is a lie. On the back the DVD says "Guaranteed Superior Quality" - HA! What a laugh! This DVD pretty much has the feel of a bootleg. The picture and sound are terrible. The picture is constantly shaking. There's no address to write to this Gemstone Entertainment. The DVD doesn't even list what the movie is rated or when it came out.
On the back of the DVD it says "Bonus Info: Biography / Filmography / Trivia / Scene Access / Interactive Menus" - LIES! LIES! LIES! LIES! LIES! There isn't even a scene selection! The menu screen is just blank and says "Play Movie".
Then, of course there is the extreme false advertising which tries to make it seem as if Robert De Niro is the main character who is plotting revenge for his brother's death when in fact De Niro plays the brother, who dies at the beginning of the movie!
The cover photo has a picture of De Niro that looks like it's from the late eighties or nineties when his footage was filmed in 1969! Doesn't this qualify as false advertising? You can't put a picture from a completely different movie on the cover of a DVD!!
Do NOT buy this DVD! No matter what you think. Even if you're a De Niro buff, like myself, it will just get you mad. This DVD is a disgrace. Gemstone Entertainment should be ashamed of themselves. In the meantime, I'm going to try and find an address for the company so I can write to them to find out exactly what this "Guaranteed Superior Quality" means.
Gemstone Entertainment = Cheap Lying Dirty Thieves

Even if you're a DeNiro fan, this is one to skip 15 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
It can be interesting and fun to watch a great actor's early work. But this film doesn't make it on any count. Also known as "Sam's Song," even the most devout DeNiro fan will be disappointed with "The Swap." Although he's top-billed and featured prominently in the poster art (for obvious marketing reasons), DeNiro's character gets killed in the first five minutes and we only see him intermittently in flashbacks. What follows is a roughly shot low-budget film with a marginally engrossing story and porn-quality acting (with the exception of DeNiro, who does fine with what little he gets). Who knows? Maybe director John Shade instructed his actors to play the movie as porn (DeNiro's character directed porn flicks) but I don't think this film is that sophisticated. Further, the DVD transfer is one of the worst you'll ever see, with film scratches and bad sound intact; it looks like they transferred an old VHS right onto DVD.
If he'd had the lead, it might have been a more interesting film. But since he does so little, it can't really qualify as an early DeNiro film like "Mean Streets." And unlike "Mean Streets," it doesn't qualify as the early work of a great director either. It's not even bad enough to be a must-see bad movie, it's just bad; a waste of money and 90 minutes.

It's not woth it! 20 May 2000
By Marie P - Published on
I bought the video because of a very misleading advertisement for this film. I am a great DeNiro fan, but this was terrible. The picture on the box leads you to believe this movie was made some time in the 1980's - it was made in 1969. The story synopsis is not only wrong, but it names DeNiro's character Johnny (possibly confusing it with his character in Mean Streets), but his name is Sammy, and he dies in the first scene, only to return in flashbacks. The acting is terrible, the story is terrible. If your looking for an old DeNiro movie, get Mean Streets, this one is not worth your time or money!

F+ 11 April 2005
By Aaron A. Goekler - Published on
Format: DVD
I find it funny that everyone posting a review here feels betrayed and used, probably because they had to pay 9 or 10 dollars for this awful movie. I payed less than a buck at Wal-mart for this, so I knew it had to suck. And it did. But I found its crappiness so amusing that I like it for that sheer fact, especially since it was no skin off of my nose to see it. That doesn't do it for most people.

I'll admit, it was a dirty, dirty trick to make it look as if Deniro was the star of the movie when he's not. The level of false advertizing should be illegal. The synopsis doesn't even mention that the main character it's talking about is not DeNiro at all. I believe most everything about this movie was bad, though I still liked DeNiro whenever he was onscreen.

Reasons to buy this movie:

1. If you are amused by crappy filmmaking.

2. If you can find it for a dollar - no more. I suggest Wal-mart, though I hate giving them business.

3. There is this great sceen about 2 or 3 minutes where DeNiro is pretending to shoot people on the beach. He rolls around and acts silly. Its worth the dollar.

Reasons not to buy this movie:

1. If it's more than a dollar. That's how bad this movie is.

2. If you do not have a sense of humor and are serious about your filmwatching.

I've got nothing else.

Swap 13 Jan 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
This film is a re-edited film. There was a film called "Sam's Song," starring DeNiro and he was in the entire film. That movie a snoozer, and the director edited the DeNiro scenes from Sam's Song into "Swap."
Find "Sam" for an example of early Bob!
