It works best as a complex macabre black comedy on family relations.

Audience Reviews for The Grissom Gang

(***): [img][/img]

Strangely interesting.


[b]Lucky Number Slevin[/b] - I was surprised how much I liked this movie! Hartnett was actually good...and I wonder how many times Willis has played a hit man?

[b]Desperation[/b] - My favorite King book...and about as good as you can expect any translated King movie. Why is it his material just doesn't work as well on the screen as it does in the book?

[b]United 93[/b] - Fantastic movie, almost documentary. Brings those feelings of that day rushing to the surface. Picture of the year.

[b]Grissom Gang[/b] - Ugh...a bargain bin blind buy with a cool cover.

[b]Beerfest[/b] - Another winner from Broken Lizard. Man these guys kill me.

Kaneda !
