Critic Reviews for 10th & Wolf

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (12)

A routine mob thriller.

August 26, 2006
Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A hellish and unconvincing celebration of badda-bing-ness.

Top Critic

Bobby Moresco, who cowrote Crash and coproduced Million Dollar Baby, makes an undistinguished directing debut, assembling a band of actors who know but two modes: simmering rage and over-the-top histrionics.

Top Critic

A mix of the first half of Donnie Brasco, the last 20 minutes of A History of Violence and a couple of episodes of I Love the'90s.

The movie doesn't miss a cliché, ineptly lifting liberally from The Godfather and GoodFellas, among other classics.

New York Post
Top Critic

At this late date, filmmakers who draw inspiration from the Mafia had better have a whole new angle to offer. Otherwise, they'll end up with a movie like 10th & Wolf.

Audience Reviews for 10th & Wolf

A 4 Star Film, About as good as they get when it comes to Crime Family Movies. A Solder is facing prison or go back home and collect information for the FBI by setting up a Mob Boss. Is packed with action and thrills and drama. A full cast. I didn't recognize Val Kilmer a change in parts for him. Dennis Hooper played good boss. But Giovanni Ribisi stole the show. If you have passed this one up before or your a little skeptic because its not a 2009 Movie, don?t be. Its well worth it. A good addition to any collection. 4 Stars

This movie is exactly why Giovanni Ribisi is one of my favorite actors. He was brilliant in this movie. But he is in every movie he does. But this movie blew me away. One of the best Mob movies I have ever seen. The cast was so good. The acting was right on the money as they say. Brad Renfro, (R.I.P) did an amazing job at playing Vincent. James Marden, was so good. I have only seen him in a couple movies and by far this movie was the best role I have seen him portray. The story was intense. It grabs you from start to finish. Just AMAZING.. I usually don't care for these types of movies, but knowing Giovanni, was in it I thought I would watch it just for that fact alone. So glad I did. I would have missed out on a really great movie. I recommend this to everyone. Even if this isn't your kind of movie, I think you will enjoy it.

The best gangster film in recent year's. It's Goodfellas meets Donnie Brasco. A stylish, complex, hard-hitting and electrifying movie. A pure knockout. Director, Bobby Moresco has crafted an insightful, powerful, tense, terifficly told and unforgettable crime drama. The cast is amasing. James Marsden is magnificent. Giovanni Ribisi is outstanding, his best performance yet. I love how these actors embrassed these roles and it shows in their performances. Searing, engaging, gripping and astonishing. Brilliant, riveting and extroadinary. An explosive action-packed story that grabs you and dosent let go. A truimph. It sets the screen on fire with great power and energy.
