News & Interviews for Knockaround Guys
Critic Reviews for Knockaround Guys
This heist flick about young Brooklyn hoods is off the shelf after two years to capitalize on the popularity of Vin Diesel, Seth Green and Barry Pepper. It should have stayed there.
Perhaps if co-directors David Levien and Brian Koppelman had spent more time devising a coherent vision for the film, we would not have felt as knocked around after watching it.
No less stale than the many derivative crime thrillers that flood the direct-to-video market.
What sounds like a formula for freakish violence and a torrent of incessant expletives is in fact a stylish mobster film that stands out due to some very inventive casting.
Even the top ensemble case of Knockaround Guys, headed by the ever-remarkable John Malkovich and charismatic Vin Diesel, can't jump the brick wall that the script hits in the last 20 minutes.
Audience Reviews for Knockaround Guys
Everywhere they go, they're sure to be a hit.
Good movie. It's no Goodfellas, but this watchable, well-crafted little mob story is easy to take, and goes a long way on its appealing cast and dark, profane sense of humor. Vin Diesel kicked ass, don't mess with him. Nice good story which entertained me late at night. The acting was decent, nothing bad to say about this movie. Popcorn movie to watch with your guy friend's.
The four sons (Diesel, Green, Pepper, Davoli) of major Brooklyn mobsters have to team up to retrieve a bag of cash in a small Montana town ruled by a corrupt sheriff. Specifically, the story gets started when Matt Demaret (Pepper) goes on a job to deliver the money for his mob father (Hopper) on the advice of his uncle (Malkovich). Things don't go as planned though...

The film follows four sons of well-known Brooklyn-based mobsters and their desperate fight to retrieve a bag of cash in a small Montana town ruled by a corrupt sheriff. As they unite to find the money, they come face-to-face with the bloodshed and betrayal that is their birthright.
I thought it had a great cast. Thought the movie was good. Little slow to begin with but got better as it went. Good little mob story.
A lean, mean, funny and stylish tough guy thriller. It packs major star power and cold blopded gunplay. A hard-hitting, fast paced and enjoyable film. Thrilling, pulse-pounding and exceptional. Packs lots of action and humor. Dennis Hopper, John Malkovich, Barry Pepper, Andrew Davoli, Seth Green and Vin Diesel give great and sensational performances.
