I like Tarantino, I like Mean Streets, hell, I like grim movies like Street Trash and Desperate Living. I like about ten of the actors in this film. But this is the laziest, most inept piece of sh1te I've seen in ten years, and I live in Canada where the creation of dismal, derivative films are a tax haven.
Simply incompetent, such as where you see three separate shots of Gandolfini walking through an airport, because, y'know, that advances the story and plot. Or Ray Liotta standing in the pouring rain, completely dry for a full minute, because they were too lazy to think of wetting his hair in the shot, and then, when the camera angle changes, instantly soaking wet. Scenes that drag on for three or four minutes, not in a "royale with cheese" kind of way, but more in a "we forgot to come up with more than half an hour of plot" kind of way.
