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.

Schroeder's film is fun to watch, even when it's being predictable or brutal, but its memory is nearly gone the next day.
