The whole operation loses its tension, allowing the story to drift into amusing but familiar territory.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The action is furious and gory, though not always fast, and the slow between-shootouts pacing doesn't generate much interest or character development.

For all of his personal familiarity with the material, Mr. Provenzano has turned out a movie that largely owes its tone and style to other movies.

Cliche-ridden and ponderous.

The movie has no personal touch; it merely assembles a who's who of mob-movie heavyweights (James Caan and Frank Vincent among them) and hopes for the best.

None of this is overly interesting, thanks to murky plotting and the fact that there's nothing involving about these bad guys.

It looks fine, it plays fine, it sounds fine, but it has no consequence.

As a modern mob fable there is plenty to impress, as Provenzano's documented legal troubles bring validation to the story and the appearances of Pastore and Vincent bring credibility to the screen.

Little tension is generated in the resulting internecine squabbles, but there's ample opportunity for the familiar supporting cast ... to wax warm and witty.
