Tough call

Cannot find a way to stop waffling on this one. Some days it's a two star film, more frequently a five-star job.

More than most, It's the kind of thing you like if you like that kind of thing. At a minimum, the pre-gentrification locations shot in Denver are good for a couple of stars and, despite the opinion of certain overcompensated "reviewers," one thing it isn't is a Pulp Fiction rip-off.

Yah, there are some outrageously twisted scenes but that's Film Noir for you. Much more than usual, if you're on the tipping point, I'd recommend *watching* Denver rather than taking a pass.

Chances are that you'll find something cool to do with Denver.

Favorite stars in a great flick.

I'm a little biased because I will pay to watch my favorite actor, William Forsythe, read the back of a cereal box. This film not only stars him; it stars the always fabulous Andy Garcia and Christopher Walken. Add in a good story and you've got this movie. Look forward to multiple viewings.

Enjoy it. Drink boat-drinks

It is one of the more enigmatic movies I have seen. Andy Garcia, in fact the whole gang of thugs, are the cream of the crop of this sort of thing, Each role is a unique one-of-a-kind character. It has a unique atmosphere of psychic pleasure and psychic danger. The title says a lot, but these characters are much more alive than most even though they have been pronounced dead by a crime boss that had once been their employer. See it. Enjoy it. Drink boat-drinks!

Great Movie

Growing up and working in the Denver area at the time the movie was made, it was great to recognize of few of my old haunts. I moved back in 2012 and boy did things change in the 14 years I was absent.

This movie is loaded with stuff---maybe too much.It runs close to two hours,has some excellent performances,some snappy but hard to follow dialog,some humor,some sadness,some brutality,and a lot of other somes. The sum of which could be too much.The first half of the movie is better than the last half. It gets a little heavy for a causual viewing.If you watch it be ready to a little depressed but if you watch the performances of a great cast and remember it's a movie you'll do okay. Garcia is good,but the smaller roles are the gems. Lloyd,Williams and Balk are sensational. Christopher Walken is beautiful in the Christopher Walken way. Forsythe tends to be underrated but is excellent.Bill Nunn and the charming Steve Buscemi are also excellent.Jack Warden's narration trys to help us understand.I do ,however,think that Gabrielle Anwar was miscast. Her acting is fine,but she just seems,well,young.The film has some nasty parts---don't let the kids in the room,but be sure to watch Christopher Lloyd.I didn't know he had it in him.Pay attention to this film and you'll have some emotions,about the film,maybe about lives you would rather not know about.

Out of the ordinary, but very entertaining.

Out of the ordinary, but very entertaining. The characters are unique, and not at all what one is accustom to seeing in this type of film. It has its own lingo, and the dialogue is very stylistic.

You need a international DVD player to watch this movie in the USA
Verified purchase
Great movie , I order the wrong reign ( 2) which won't play in the USA unless you have a international DVD player. I contacted the seller that was the answer - not a refund or replace but I need to buy a different DVD player.
