An On the Waterfront wannabe, directed with a heavy portentousness that smothers the drama in a thick sauce of self-importance.

I can't remember when a film so well-acted and so well-rendered visually was also so oppressive to sit through.
June 24, 2006
A sensitive, intelligent and ambitious variation on the traditional going-straight story.

After a point, The Yards crosses the line from portentously atmospheric to merely dolorous.

Collapses into a weary catalog of crime-movie cliches and political impossibilities.

More preoccupied with themes and moods than providing anything intriguing plot-wise or character-wise for the viewer to truly care about.

The ingredients are here for a classy crime drama. They just don't blend that easily.

The only thing the movie lacks is a pulse.
