Bross and co-writer Tom Cudworth can be commended for managing to give everyone a hard-knock yet morally satisfying ending.
Audience Reviews for Ten Benny
Some bad scenes, even worse music, and really a story that isn't so much driven by any emotion than it is whiny stupidity. The film felt like a playground's version of Goodfellas, in a way where it is lacking and minimally motivated. Considering the type of films Eric Bross does, this'll (sadly) probably be his best... but hey at least he scored Brody. Not even he could save this film..More
