Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Energetic, earnestly performed and short on nuance."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"From start to finish, it feels like an amalgam of various other crime movies."
‑ David Nusair, Apollo Guide
"It may not be as epochal a piece of work as Mean Streets, but packs what feels like a real-life punch none the less."
‑ Steve Simels, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The performances are correspondingly overblown and the soundtrack inundated with grandiose choral music and mediocre hard rock."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A hard-edged gangster revenge movie which suffers from a budget too small to enable it to rise to its rightful place as a major crime genre film."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"For an updated -- but not revisionist -- version of Dead End or Angels With Dirty Faces or even Mean Streets, you could do worse."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"Robotic acting and outtakes from the Stigmata soundtrack complement the perfunctory plot, while the dialogue indulges massive backstorytelling and desperate iteration."
‑ Ed Park, Village Voice
"It's less than ordinary in every which way."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Seems to be cut from the same cloth as almost every low-budget mobster film."
‑ Jon Popick, Planet Sick-Boy
