Harvey Keitel is John Harris, a Drug Enforcement Agent on the trail for Carl Fraser (Viggo Mortensen). Fraser will stop at nothing to seize the mob's drug trade, recruiting violent street punks to do his killing. Harris' only hope is to enlist Chris, a confused dead-end kid whose only allegiance is to his friends. But when Fraser's murderous ways hit too close to home, Chris crosses the line between honor and deceit to infiltrate the gang. Ultimately, both he and Harris must face Fraser's wrath in a deadly confrontation at point-blank range.
The Young Americans
I enjoyed this film which surprised me. I went into it thinking it would be the same old same old. I was pleasantly wrong. Solid acting especially by the actor who played Chris, Harvey Keitel, and Thandie Newton. The storyline included plenty of action and moved along well. The musical score was excellent. A great film.
