TV Guide's Movie Guide

A violent, tortuous melodrama that labors mightily to be an Irish Mean Streets or a latter-day Wild Bunch.

A handsomely produced, mostly riveting, but ultimately overlong and overindulgent gangster picture.

A gritty, intense and explosive Irish gangster drama that's second only to Scorsese's GoodFellas as the best film of 1990.

Mr. Oldman gives an electrifying performance that both establishes a tragic, terrifying character and explains why that character's world is such a perilous place.
