Critic Reviews for Federal Hill

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

Corrente's handling of class divisions (one of the heroes starts seeing a Brown University senior he sells cocaine to) and the body language of the performances keep things fresh.

Producer-director-scripter Michael Corrente manages to bring freshness to basically derivative material in Federal Hill, thanks to a number of excellent performances and some evocative black-and-white images of a world he knows intimately.

Federal Hill is lively and likable, a first film with the kind of swift action, clever dialogue and clear-cut characters that suggest an expert director's touch.

Federal Hill has sincerity on its side and a fair degree of authenticity.

Top Critic

There is nothing terribly different or exciting about what he shows us; the film is gripping in a conventional, formulaic way.

Top Critic

With the possible exception of utilizing an atypical location (Providence, Rhode Island's Federal Hill as opposed to New York City or Long Island), there is little in this film that hasn't been done before, and better.
