A scene near the beginning has Vincent D'Onforio driving and music is playing The Closed Caption says it is The Temptations singing "Smiling Faces". The song was originally recorded by The Temptations in 1971. Producer Norman Whitfield had the song re-recorded by The Undisputed Truth the same year, resulting in a number-three Billboard Hot 100 position for the group. "Smiling Faces" was the only Top 40 single released by the Undisputed Truth, and was included on their debut album The Undisputed Truth. The version heard on the movie is by The Undisputed Truth.



User Review

Pretty Good

Rating: 7/10


A septic tank cleaner Sully (Hawke) wants his unborn child to have a
genius IQ; a mobster boss Tarzo (D Onofrio) wants to become truly
famous; and Jasper (Cassel), a deaf mute butcher, plays the horses and
does dirty work for Tarzo. When their paths collide, nothing will ever
be the same.

This starts out like it's going to be a comedy of sorts telling all
about the forgotten New York Borough, Staten Island, and that the mob
lives there and they also bury their victims there and you chuckle a
little. Then the real movie starts and be prepared for a little gore.
It is not a comedy. However, near the end, it does become somewhat
comedic and you will chuckle again.

There is some gore in here and although you may not see all of it, your
mind's eye will and you will squirm a lot. Of course, I chose to look
away anyway. Hey, I have to sleep at night.

The acting performances are all good and the pace keeps you tuned in
because you are not sure how things will play out. I must say that I
become more impressed with Ethan Hawke with each movie. He is more than
good. He delivers. When he gets scared, I get scared too. See?

Pretty good for a small budget movie.

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes.
