September 19, 2008
What's most effective about the new Kiss of Death is Tucci's marvelously slimy prosecutor.

Classy film noir, as you would expect from a team including director Barbet Schroeder, writer Richard Price, and Nicolas Cage...

A crackling thriller that feels unusually attuned to its lowlife characters.

June 18, 2002
A riveting crime drama.
January 28, 2002
Price has a good sense of story structure, and this remake of the 1947 thriller is taut and engrossing.
February 13, 2001
Cage, one of the few American actors who gets more interesting from film to film, comes close to kidnaping the picture as Little Junior, a pumped-up but asthmatic thug who, like King Kong, is a gorilla with a wistful air about him.
January 1, 2000
The picture is watchable, but nothing about it will linger, except perhaps the feeling that, with a more polished script, it might have been significantly better.

Caruso's acting is vivid, but amazingly quiet and internal, and it's fascinating to watch the kaleidoscopically conflicted emotions battle beneath his controlled surface.
