Never seen this Mickey Rourke vehicle before and now I know why. Most likely Rourke´s worst movie during the 80`s in my opinion. Sloppy direction, bad editing, b-movie feeling, clichés in characters, soundtrack and script. And Mickey Rourke on autopilot trying to do some modern The Hunchback of Notre-Dame... A disappointment. At times the movie doesn´t even feel like it is connected to it´s different parts. "Homeboy" is one for the shelves in the back without no doubt.
Rewatchability isn't very high - but it is something that I will watch many more times in my lifetime.
10/10 - fresh
