"Christopher Walken's finest is a gangster movie with bite!"
5 stars"

Christopher Walken is the King. Full stop. See this movie for no other reason other than to see Walken in a lead role on top form. If you need more reasons, well, it's a great movie. Walken stars as Frank White – a gangster newly released from jail. Only this is written and directed by cult outsider Abel Ferrara (who brought us Harvey Keitel's blistering ‘Bad Lieutenant’) so this is much much more than a regular Hollywood gangster rap. In fact, many see it as a vampire movie, dressed up in gangster's clot­hing. Watch it too for an amazing cast. Members of Walken's dedicated gang of crim's include gun-happy Jimmy Jump (Laurence Fishburne) and Test Tube (Steve Buscemi). Together they start a gang war, “whacking” rivals whilst trying to avoid the cops – played by David Caruso and Wesley Snipes. A dark, brooding, menacing, grown-up take on the gangster movie that seethes with an ever present undercurrant of moody violence and razor-blade sharp performances. An underrated, under-valued gem that deserves to be seen… and seen again… if only to prove that before he wound up doing cameos, playing small parts in bigger movies, Walken was a leading man in his own right who smoulders with charisma, presence and danger. Adz

Description

Not everyone who runs a city is elected. Christopher Walken stars as Frank White, an ultracool crime boss, in this moody gem from director Abel Ferrara. Released from a long stint in jail, White rejoins his devoted gang, which includes the trigger-happy Jimmy Jump (Laurence Fishburne), Test Tube (Steve Buscemi), and his attractive attorney girlfriend, Jennifer (Janet Julian). Setting up headquarters in Trump Plaza, they start wiping out members of rival mobs in a bid to take back the streets and indulge in lots of cocaine and sex, but ultimately White has more noble ambitions, such as giving a fortune in drug money to charity. David Caruso, Victor Argo, and Wesley Snipes costar as a group of bitter cops who don¡¦t buy Frank¡¦s change of heart and decide to go outside the law to take him down.
