3.0 out of 5 stars Good film but not a classic, 30 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Another Day In Paradise [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
At the start of the film a young thief runs into trouble with a security guard during a robbery, this sets the tone for the film. It is essentially a road movie which has an older experienced thief, his junkie partner, and the younger thief and his pregnant girlfriend ending up in all sorts of scrapes. The early part of the film has a very cool feel to it with flashy dialogue and a great soundtrack of old classic tunes. This changes as the film progresses. James Woods tries to keep calm but looks dangerous, menacing and about to explode at any time and there is graphic drug use with Melanie Griffith sticking needles into herself. One of the scenes of a drug deal gone wrong looks very influenced by Tarantino and moments in the film remind me of True Romance. Fans of Kids, Bully and Ken Park may be disappointed by this direction and although this movie is slightly weaker than those classics it is a competent film and a worthwhile watch with strong performances from the four leading cast members.
