a lesser known but almost perfect gangster (kind of) film that deserves wider audience and aknowlegement.. a film of small budget but with a big heart. Andy Garcia, perfectly cast, (one of the most under rated actors of recent times in my opinion), providing his usual edge and a Christopher Walken stealing the show with a fearsome perfomance, proving that deerhunter, many yrs ago was not a one off..
Perfect acting all around, many interesting characters, sharp witty dialogue, cool catchphrases and niknames, suspense and true emotion give unexpected depth to this little story mixing romance, friendship, revenge and honour..
And ok , the basis of it that a mature tough crew of mafia have beens are given such a simple task and manage to f.k it up, might be somewhat faltered, but the story develops so well that u totally forget about it.. a little diamond of a film that can be watched and enjoyed equally from both men and women (and how often can u say that for a gangster movie!).
"boat drinks" guys....
