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.
