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!

I don't want to give the storyline away too much spoiling it for others who have not watched it, all I will say is that we have something of a mid level gang boss (Miguel Ferrer), who kills a contact of a bigger higher level crime lord (Harvey Keitel). As a direct result the big fish, tries to bully the smaller fish into coughing up a serious amount of money as compensation. Naturally the smaller fish does not take too kindly to being bullied. However and more importantly, he becomes set on revenge when he discovers that his wife has been butchered. With the aid of his only remaining lackey (Cuba Gooding, Jr.), we end up with something of a bloodbath on our hands.
It's a nice tight thriller that is well directed in a realistic fashion by Franck Khalfoun. Whom I've never heard of before. In any event it's worth the highest rating possible that I can bestow upon it. Further I strongly recommended this film to others, especially if you happen the like violent gangster movies.
