Although things like character development are sometimes lost in the crossfire, the lead actors have enough charm to sustain the film.

It's an excuse for the latest crop of media-spawned personalities -- the male equivalent of starlets -- to invade the heavy-duty genre of the gangster film. They don't come up to Cagney's spats.
