Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Gives off a winter-in-Boston chill that you take with you in your bones."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com

"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."
‑ David Luty, Film Journal International
"A realistic, hard-boiled peek at an old Irish, close-knit neighborhood, in Boston's blue-collar Charlestown section."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
