Middle Men Reviews

January 3, 2011
Is Jack, who is patterned on a real-life character, sociopathic or just plain clueless? Gallo doesn't seem to care. He cares about parading before us lowlifes living the high life.

I never got the feeling Gallo and company figured out how to compress and focus their stories.

Mr. Gallo, for his part, is content to decorate a fairly conventional, intermittently entertaining crime chronicle with a bit of skin and a soupon of pop sociology. There must be other ways to learn about pornography on the Internet.

Kind of a mess.
August 6, 2010
This very well-acted, often amusing and dirty-minded hard-R film still stands out in a sea of market-driven blandness.

Middle Men is an anxious film, but not in a good way, in that it doesn't generate suspense so much as dread.
August 6, 2010
Gallo has the start of a good story here, but he can't find an original way to explore it.

Take away the nudity and sleaze, and at its heart Middle Men is about billing. No wonder it needed all the jiggling.

Think Boogie Nights meets Casino, though it's not likely to make the lasting impression of either seminal film.

[A] frenetic jumble of subplots and sleazy characters...
August 5, 2010
A highly entertaining, flawed, ripped-off-and-reassembled carnival of sleaze.
August 4, 2010
A colorful supporting cast gives this uneven Internet porn saga a potent boost.

This one's coming in under the radar. Keep an eye out...Best of all is Wilson, digging into his juiciest role in years.
August 4, 2010
Perhaps it's inevitable that this cranked-up drama wants it both ways.
August 4, 2010
...the picture is never not engaging, and it certainly has its moments.
August 4, 2010
[Wilson's] phenomenal performance as a family man undone by sexual and financial temptation is more than this movie deserves.
August 3, 2010
Even without much character development, the compelling story holds, mostly due to Wilson.
August 3, 2010
This inspired-by-a-true-story film about the birth of Internet porn is giddily sleazy, full of convincing crazies and criminals, as well as the scumbags and wannabes who surround them.

Relentlessly sleazy but undeniably intriguing.
