Kiss of Death

Critics Consensus

An outstanding ensemble cast propels Kiss of Death, a noir-ish crime thriller that's slick and big on atmosphere, even if its script may only provide sporadic bursts of tension.

    What impressed me to start with was all the name actors - Nicholas Cage, Samuel Jackson, Helen Hunt, etc. You are alternately distressed at the hopelessness of fighting organized crime and hope for the hero.

    A whole host of great actors that were so much younger and greener in 1995. David Caruso plays an excellent part as a informant to a Distrait Attorney, and who he is informing on is a tough Little Junior Brown (Nicolas Cage, mean while he's putting up with the cop who was shot in a prior crime Samuel L Jackson, Plenty of action and very well written for a 1995 movie that is worth watching more then once. 4 1/2 stars

    Utterly boring and stupid. Seriously this film was going nowhere and was just dragging everything on. Crap and overused storyline. What a shame, there were a few good actors in here. And Nicholas Cage for once developed his character, as all his others are the same, unlike this time. Don't bother wasting 2 hours of your life on this crap, unless you have absolutely nothing to do.
