Solid crime thriller
Ex-con Jimmy Kilmartin agrees to drive a truck of stolen cars as a favour to a friend. Whilst on the job he gets caught but refuses to role over on the others involved. Whilst in prison his wife is killed in a car crash and Jimmy leaves prison, bitter but with a determination to move on. However NYPD officer Calvin wants to use Kilmartin to get close to Little Junior Brown and get evidence to shut him down.
This was one of several vehicles that was planned to turn David Caruso from a TV hit to a big screen star – as we know, it didn’t work out that way. However the story is pretty solid, it doesn’t break new ground and there’s nothing outside of the usual crime thriller plot to surprise you but it’s really quite good. At times it’s a little dull because it is so straight forward but it’s mostly entertaining.
Caruso, for all his current lack of success, is actually very good. The problem is that he’s good by doing the same “NY Irish tough but fair” role that he did in NYPD Blue, King of New York, Bodycount and most films he’s done! It’s good but I don’t think he can do anything else. Jackson has presence as he always does and the support cast is really well filled out with people like Helen Hunt, Stanley Tucci, Rapaport, Philip Baker Hall, Ving Rhames. Nicolas Cage’s Little Junior is a mixed bag. At some points he is effective but for the most part he’s horribly OTT and hammy. His character is full of ticks and eccentricities that at the end of the day that’s all Cage has to do.
Overall this is a solid thriller with no surprises. Caruso fans (like me) will like it regardless because it’s Caruso doing his usual role. But others may not be so easily made to overlook the weaknesses.
Okay, But Just Too Hard, Too Nasty For Most People
This is not the 1947 film but a 1995 re-make of the famous gangster flick of the same name. While the classic film had one brutally nasty guy, this one has a whole cast full of them….too nasty, frankly. I watched this once and was fairly interested in it. A couple of years later, took a second look and found it so sleazy and I couldn’t finish it.
David Caruso, who obtained a lot more fame in television shows than movies, still was interesting for me to watch as he played Victor Mature’s old role. Caruso is one of the better actors I’ve seen when it comes to expressing his emotions just by his facial looks. It seems fashionable to knock him, but I’ve always been a fan of his work.
Nicholas Cage plays Richard Widmark’s psycho character “Tommy Udo” but is called “Little Junior Brown” in this film. Personally, I liked Widmark’s performance and character much more.
A lot of people, especially 20-somethings, like these modern tough films with brutal characters and tons of profanity, but the characters in this movie were so nasty that the film never really caught on with anybody.
It certainly had one thing going for it: a very good cast that also included Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Rapaport, Ving Rhames, Stanley Tuccki, Helen Hunt and Kathryn Erbe.
To summarize: it’s not that bad: it just has too hard an edge to it.
