Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Juicy acting and an intense individual and communal commitment that seems to boil up from the streets carry Southie past its structural and technical limitations. [28 May 1999] Full Review
Ken Eisner
Variety
Bottom-drawer plot of a South Boston bad boy returning to tie up loose ends reads like every other "Mean Streets" knockoff in the past decade, with no scene, development or performance standing out from undifferentiated din. Full Review
Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor
The movie paints a vivid portrait of a time and place, but falls back on familiar formulas that diminish its value as both emotional drama and slice-of-life realism. Full Review
Tom Meek
Film Threat
The acting is admirable and the film's hip, on-the-street feel is enticing, it's just too bad that this Irish "Goodfellas" hangs itself with a plot that's contrived and one dimensional. Full Review
William Arnold
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Directed with a Scorsese-ish flair by actor John Shea (who also plays a small part), the film is loaded with gritty atmosphere and touches of authenticity. [12 Jun 1998] Full Review
