Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The whole operation loses its tension, allowing the story to drift into amusing but familiar territory."
‑ Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune
"Rings with authenticity and solid acting."
‑ Megan Lehmann, New York Post
"As a modern mob fable there is plenty to impress, as Provenzano's documented legal troubles bring validation to the story and the appearances of Pastore and Vincent bring credibility to the screen."
‑ Brad Slager, Film Threat
"The action is furious and gory, though not always fast, and the slow between-shootouts pacing doesn't generate much interest or character development."
‑ Jack Zink, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"None of this is overly interesting, thanks to murky plotting and the fact that there's nothing involving about these bad guys."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"For all of his personal familiarity with the material, Mr. Provenzano has turned out a movie that largely owes its tone and style to other movies."
‑ Dave Kehr, New York Times
"It looks fine, it plays fine, it sounds fine, but it has no consequence."
‑ Kim Williamson, Boxoffice Magazine
"[A] familiar but well-told tale."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The movie has no personal touch; it merely assembles a who's who of mob-movie heavyweights (James Caan and Frank Vincent among them) and hopes for the best."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"Cliche-ridden and ponderous."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"It's no GoodFellas, but it's still a reasonably good time."
