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.

Boxoffice Magazine

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.

A routine mob thriller.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

It's an ambitious gambit, undercut by characters that stay at a frustrating arm's length.

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.

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.

10th & Wolf alternates between being bloody good and just plain bloody.

A played-out saga of guns, gangsters and goofball actors pretending to be tough guys.

Those looking for violence and bad Italian stereotypes won't be bothered by the fact that they've seen almost all of this before.

A grisly gangster movie with moral pretensions, 10th and Wolf never transcends mobster cliches recycled from The Godfather, Donnie Brasco and GoodFellas.
