  • It's good, hard-edged stuff, violent and a bit exploitative but also nicely done, morally alert and street-smart. show more

  • An intelligent crime drama, not because of the criminal activity it dramatizes but because of its powerful examination of the forces that drive criminals. show more

  • The movie is ambitious, has good energy and is well-acted, but tells a familiar story in a familiar way. The parallels to Brian De Palma's "Scarface" are underlined by scenes from that movie which are watched by the characters in this one. show more
