A derivative, senseless movie that owes its entire existence to Tarantino.

Audience Reviews for The Last Days of Frankie the Fly

½

This Tarantino knock-off is a real mess. Frankie works for a 2nd rate mobster who deals in pornography. Frankie falls for it's star attraction, Margaret, played by Daryl Hannah. Joey is the director of these sex movies and decides to go behind the mobsters back in obtaining extra cash. This proves to be a no no and with Frankie getting involved in the mess one only knows whether or not he'll make it out alive (especially since the title suggests otherwise). I'll just be up front and say he doesn't die and it's not his last days. Although I've seen better days with these actors in other movies. Even this type of story has been played out better in other movies. Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead is one film that comes to mind while I was watching this movie.

I was suprised that I had never heard of this movie.. Really underrated. You cant help but feel sorry for Dennis Hoppers character, and the ending tied it all together for a somewhat happy ending.. Adam Scott of step brothers has a funny scence in which was probably 1 of his 1st ever. Madsen plays the part of Arrogant tough mob boss really well, and Kiefers hilarious.. 6/10 Check this out, you wont be disappointed.

Quirky story and performances by Hopper and Sutherland, funny, twisted and entertaining for a rainy afternoon.
