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's most effective about the new Kiss of Death is Tucci's marvelously slimy prosecutor.
A crackling thriller that feels unusually attuned to its lowlife characters.
Cage and Caruso strike sparks in this riveting piece of pulp fiction, but it's that first Kiss you'll remember.
It's a sleek, muscular thriller played by a terrific ensemble cast...
A riveting crime drama.
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.
There's little doubt that Kiss of Death fares best in its opening stretch...
Classy film noir, as you would expect from a team including director Barbet Schroeder, writer Richard Price, and Nicolas Cage...
Gutsy dialogue, atmospheric direction, lots of night scenes and an uninhibited take on the source material.
An interesting noirlike crime drama propelled by Cage's eccentric performance
Violent crime tale which Caruso hoped would make him a movie star. It didn't.
The real mystery is why Caruso left NYPD Blue.
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
Forget the other well known actors in this film, this is a David Curuso film, with the smaller parts being played by others. Curuso himself plays quite a good role, unfortunately I think Nick Cage ruined this film, his attempt at playing the pshycho, was less than believable and he just looked like a corny action star.
Remake of the classic forties noir, but this aptly titled version is probably more famous for being the first David Caruso's big screen looked okay.
