All Critics (21) | Top Critics (6)

All the camaraderie aside, these are not particularly likable characters, yet [Leary] still manages to make you care about Bobby. It's been a long time since even Robert DeNiro pulled that one off, and Leary deserves as much credit as he can get.

Though very much in the vein of Scorsese's masterpiece Mean Streets, Ted Demme's bleak and downbeat tale has its distinctive merits, not least of which is the acting.

Prefectly entertaining "gangs, guns & streets" tale.

Jul 31, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5

A realistic, hard-boiled peek at an old Irish, close-knit neighborhood, in Boston's blue-collar Charlestown section.

Gives off a winter-in-Boston chill that you take with you in your bones.

As soon as the script turns serious, the film slows to a languid crawl, and ends up as a slight retread of all-too-familiar elements.

Audience Reviews for Monument Ave.

While it may be familiar, Monument Ave is gritty, realistic, and certainly an authentic depiction of the bleak nature of the 'mean streets'. Denis Leary is especially convincing.
