What's most effective about the new Kiss of Death is Tucci's marvelously slimy prosecutor.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Classy film noir, as you would expect from a team including director Barbet Schroeder, writer Richard Price, and Nicolas Cage...

A crackling thriller that feels unusually attuned to its lowlife characters.

Gutsy dialogue, atmospheric direction, lots of night scenes and an uninhibited take on the source material.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

An interesting noirlike crime drama propelled by Cage's eccentric performance

Cage and Caruso strike sparks in this riveting piece of pulp fiction, but it's that first Kiss you'll remember.

Steve Crum
Kansas City Kansan

Violent crime tale which Caruso hoped would make him a movie star. It didn't.

| Original Score: 2/5

The real mystery is why Caruso left NYPD Blue.

Atmospheric yet ultimately hollow exercise in tedium.

Laramie Movie Scope

The real problem with this film is a so-so screenplay: the dialogue is lame, and many scenes lack any real suspense.

Unjustly overlooked thriller packs a punch

| Original Score: 4/5

Nicolas Cage is a riot. Caruso, immersing.

Price has a good sense of story structure, and this remake of the 1947 thriller is taut and engrossing.

Cage, one of the few American actors who gets more interesting from film to film, comes close to kidnaping the picture as Little Junior, a pumped-up but asthmatic thug who, like King Kong, is a gorilla with a wistful air about him.

If you've got three spare hours and a yen for good filmmaking, skip Kiss and rent the real thing, not the pale copy.

If you savor movies about sleazy plea bargains and other lawyer hardballing, Death has its moments. Otherwise the latest from director Barbet Schroeder is only a movie of moments.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

It shouldn't be disjointed and uncompelling, but it is.
