October 25, 2006
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.

Those looking for violence and bad Italian stereotypes won't be bothered by the fact that they've seen almost all of this before.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
August 11, 2006
A listless Godfather-meets-Donnie Brasco tale of undercover surveillance, blood allegiances, and wrenching betrayal.

August 17, 2006
A grisly gangster movie with moral pretensions, 10th and Wolf never transcends mobster cliches recycled from The Godfather, Donnie Brasco and GoodFellas.

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

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.

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 22, 2006
A hellish and unconvincing celebration of badda-bing-ness.
August 16, 2006
Pic throws together gangster archetypes and set pieces, relying heavily on exposition to stand in for character development.
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.

A played-out saga of guns, gangsters and goofball actors pretending to be tough guys.
August 16, 2006
Like every Mafia movie you've ever seen blended into one cliche-ridden package.

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

A routine mob thriller.
