Not as violent as some would like you to think...
Verified purchase
I see some of these reviewers going on about how this movie is sooo bloody and violent, trust me there are others far worse than this one. To me, it is pretty minimal with just a bit more in the end, but still even that isn't all that much considering the type of genre this movie is. Don't watch a mafia style movie or for that matter, war and gang related and not expect a lot of violence - seriously. It's sad Ferrer's talents are forever gone, he was a fine actor, in my opinion far better than his cousin, Clooney. As for Gooding Jr., sorry, but he just doesn't fit in this genre. Even his facial expressions look forced while trying to be the tough guy. Overall, a decent movie, many parts drag, but it's okay, could've been better.

Great film, underrated!!!
Verified purchase
I Loved this film, Basically a small crew gets involved against a big crew UP in like the Jersey, New York area. They are outnumbered, their outgunned, They got in way over their heads. If you know how far a gangster has to go to prove his authority, To maintain his respect with violence then you're gonna love this movie , This film has a little bit Of a soprano Feeling to it and I think the acting was just Perfect All the characters were played quite well They fit the roles perfectly. This film is completely Underrated people forget that your life can easily be changed by the situations these characters get put in. That's what made this film so good for me

Now THAT'S a gansta movie
Verified purchase
Great cast, excellent acting, and quite the ambiance. Not a "complex" story, but what do you expect? It's a vengeance tale that reveals more and more as it develops. It doesn't have to be "deep," because it tells the fairly simple tale so well. Raw and gnarly, and Gooding Jr. is totally believable. Well, all the acting is. Don't look for "redemptive" elements here. It's just a long look into the dark. But, somehow, by the end you feel that you understand something of more depth. Well worth the ride!

Lots of bleeding

I like the 5.1 surround. I like 16:9 but this one is 2.35 which is theater quality. I like the violence. I like the shooting and use of knives. Seems criminals have a penchant for killing; they will even kill other criminals and even persons on their own team. This is the fifth in a row that was 5.1; with violence this is another Amazon Prime Video recommendation that is right on the mark.

Puts you right in the Zone

A good compelling gangster story. No more no less. Actors were all solid for the genre; they all looked and played the part well. The characters really didn't need a lot of back story; they were that good. Production value was quality. For all the crime dramas I've sampled over the years I like this style, and it rates up in the upper echelon.

Gangsters vs. Gangsters
Verified purchase
Cuba Gooding Jr. plays Joshua, an enforcer for a gangster played by Ferrer. A drug addict who believes he was abducted by space aliens tells a lie and sets in motion a series of actions involving Joshua and his boss. Ferrer's revenge escalates a mini-gang war.

This is a good movie if you liked Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. If not (if you're the type that likes drama), then skip it. Plenty of gun play in this one and there's blood, gore and the single-mindedness of criminals.

Some say Gooding Jr. is miscast as a criminal enforcer. I say he's expanding his repertoire. There are a couple of subplots in this film that explain a lot of the motivation for the characters' actions. Very well acted and quite realistic. And not one puke scene!

Cuba Gooding sulks around with a brooding face and a gun.
Verified purchase
Its got some decent (not great but decent) action 'n gore and a bunch of scummy bad guys with slightly lighter colored "black hats" go and kill 'n revenge a bunch of more scummy badder guys with really "black hats." Cuba Gooding sulks around with faces, ticks, and looks that are all familiar to audiences and overall answers why Hollywood moved on from him so abruptly. Harvey, bless his heart, looks old and tired of playing a role he's played a dozen times. Tragedies of the past are alluded to via the same flashback sequence over and over, but never developed (or really even matter). "Wrong Turn at Tahoe" is just a hollow shoot 'em with actor faces that you recognize (just older w/ more wrinkles).

Would be 4 stars other than a needless 10 second clip.
Verified purchase
****SPOILERS**** I leave a lot of room in movies but really dislike rape scenes, this one included a 10 second clip as a flashback where a mans middle school aged daughter is getting raped in front of him and it added zero value to the movie. Blah blah, bunch of adults killing each other over stupid stuff, another one of those movies, cool, we get it. They're consenting adults however choosing to engage in dangerous activity, if they die whatever. So I felt this rape scene was needless, in poor taste and didn't sit well with me at all!
