The performances are correspondingly overblown and the soundtrack inundated with grandiose choral music and mediocre hard rock.
Robotic acting and outtakes from the Stigmata soundtrack complement the perfunctory plot, while the dialogue indulges massive backstorytelling and desperate iteration.
From start to finish, it feels like an amalgam of various other crime movies.
A hard-edged gangster revenge movie which suffers from a budget too small to enable it to rise to its rightful place as a major crime genre film.
It may not be as epochal a piece of work as Mean Streets, but packs what feels like a real-life punch none the less.
For an updated -- but not revisionist -- version of Dead End or Angels With Dirty Faces or even Mean Streets, you could do worse.
