Audience Reviews for Streets of New York


This was quite a surprising movie. It had a decent story and the acting was quite well. The ony real problem I had with this movie is that it felt like it was rushed at the end and tied up al the loose ends up way too quickly. Otherwise, I was quite surprised at how good this movie turned out.
