About the Movie

Abel Ferrara's stylish direction accentuates this gritty action film about a New York drug lord (Christopher Walken) who's just out of prison and determined to rule the streets again with a vengeance. But this time, amidst his violent crusade, he also wants to use part of his drug-trade money to do good -- by donating it to a local hospital for the poor. The stellar supporting cast includes Wesley Snipes, David Caruso and Laurence Fishburne.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: [Ferrara] works unapologetically in B-movie territory, but does it with A-movie style. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jun 28, 2010

Fresh: Complementing Walken's bravura turn are equally flamboyant performances by David Caruso as the young Irish cop out to destroy Walken, and Larry Fishburne as Walken's slightly crazy aide-de-camp. – Variety Staff, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: A hepped-up film about drugs that plays as if the filmmakers themselves kept a healthy supply of the stuff at hand. – Hal Hinson, Washington Post, Jun 28, 2010
