Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The surface is rough and profane enough, and the acting sufficiently restrained, to cover the sentimental story with a varnish of gritty realism. But stylish bravado and bad-boy performances don't make the film any less predictable. Full Review
Derek Elley
OK entertainment but nothing more. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Dramatically lackluster. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Takes a long time getting started and doesn't hit its stride until Danny starts coaching a team of fellow cons -- think "Bad News Bears," just nastier. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
More machine than mean, although it's anything but a smoothly running operation. Full Review
