CINEMA - Film critic James Monaco ...
A New York Mafia has dreams of grandeur, but not to the liking of his colleagues. Having been the victim of an assassination attempt, he discovers that his family had turned against him. The butcher a deaf-mute, and a discharger of septic tanks will cross his path.

Heads to remember
It is not often that Vincent D'Onofrio has experienced one of his greatest roles in "Full Metal Jacket" (1987) by Stanley Kubrick before participating in the series "New York Police Forensics. Seymour Cassel is also a second knife which was very popular among the favorites of John Cassavetes to appear in many independent films. Ethan Hawke was recently on display from "7:58 on Saturday there" by Sidney Lumet.

Backstage Backstage
The director James de Monaco, writer of "Negotiator" (1998) by F. Gary Gray et d'«Assaut sur le central 13» (2005) de Jean-François Richet, a grandi à Staten Island où se déroule son film. Gary Gray and "Assault on the central 13" (2005) Jean-François Richet, grew up in Staten Island where the film takes place. It was inspired by people he has known for creating the three main characters of his film. History to prevent the film is depressing, he added color to certain parts pétantes costumes of the characters. A way to pay tribute to Federico Fellini in which he is a fan. The film director has also been considered classic mafia films like "The Godfather" by Francis Ford Coppola and "liberated" by Martin Scorsese.

Most of the film
James Monaco signs a thriller excellent served with a nice roster of players. The construction of the film that interweaves the fates of various characters communicate a playful adventures very dark. It is a real pleasure to see how the mechanics of the scenario. The actors, including the excellent Vincent D'Onofrio, will give their heart.

The least of the film
We have already seen many times this type of mafia stories and adventures offered are quite predictable.

The replica that kills
"I want to take over Staten Island. Any lead. I want everything. Absolutely everything." Vincent D'Onofrio says he wants his men.
