Movie Info

Joey returns to his home in Staten Island and discovers that things changed dramatically while he was in prison. His mother died, and his brother Tommy married. Joey's former flame has also married and had kids. Big brother Tommy takes Joey in, much to the displeasure of his stripper-wife Lorraine. She thinks Joey will be trouble but doesn't seem to notice that the biggest trouble is sleeping beside her in bed. After many problems, tensions escalate into the story's violent final confrontation.

Works fine when it sticks to drama, but when it ventures off into thriller cliché terrotory it bogs down considerably.

Fantastic character study and crime film by the much neglected Giovinazzo. Roth is great as the "slow" ex-con who used to be much smarter before an "accident" (very similar to The Lookout) while Russo in just as good as his slimy brother with a guilty conscience. Though it's not a masterpiece like Giovinazzo's other 2 films, it's still necessary viewing for fans of his work.

I quite enjoyed this movie, Tim roth was excellent! Although it is quite a slow paced movie it keeps you interested as to what really happened and whats going to happen, although the story is a little bit predictable theres other things that surprise you! Tim Roth plays an ex con who doesnt seem like the killing and is really emthursiactic about getting a job and making a life for himself! but not everything seems right and his brother soon shows is true colours! The ending however was a bit disappointing! a bit unanswered and should have been better!!
