A respectable addition to the packed pantheon of watchable but all too familiar Mafia-themed movies.

Coming from a guy who just won an Oscar for screenwriting? One has the right to expect something a little less rote, redundant, and oppressively familiar as 10th & Wolf.
August 26, 2006
A routine mob thriller.
August 26, 2006
A rather conventional plot is invigorated by intense lead performances from Marsden, Renfro and Ribisi, whose Joey is continually ready to explode in fierce anger, as well as a very good supporting cast, particularly Dennehy and Lesley Anne Warren.
August 22, 2006
A hellish and unconvincing celebration of badda-bing-ness.
August 20, 2006
Handsome, well-made film that is simply too familiar.
August 19, 2006
This works both as an action film and Greek tragedy.

You get to laugh, see some blood and even get choked up a couple of times. Not too shabby, eh?
August 18, 2006
The narrative is cluttered with backstory -- and the endless digressions overwhelm the efforts of a generally strong cast that includes cameos by Val Kilmer and by Ligati as one of Reggio's foot soldiers.
August 18, 2006
There's so little satisfaction to be had from the derivative set pieces and predictable plot twists that, mostly, you just want it to be over.
August 18, 2006
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.
August 18, 2006
It's an ambitious gambit, undercut by characters that stay at a frustrating arm's length.
August 18, 2006
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.
August 18, 2006
The movie doesn't miss a clich, ineptly lifting liberally from The Godfather and GoodFellas, among other classics.
August 18, 2006
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.
August 18, 2006
10th & Wolf alternates between being bloody good and just plain bloody.
August 18, 2006
A played-out saga of guns, gangsters and goofball actors pretending to be tough guys.
