Kill the Irishman

Plays like a greatest hits of mob movies, but so what?


Drama

Rod Lott
“Kill the Irishman" begins with a bang, figuratively and literally, with a kinda-fake-looking exploding car just like the one that went kablooey in the opening moments of Martin Scorsese's "Casino."

Mr. Nice

One wishes it were meaner and leaner.


Drama

Rod Lott
"Mr. Nice" is a little too true to its title. Had the film had more balls, it might have made a stronger impression. Based upon the real-life exploits of Howard Marks, writer/director Bernard Rose tracks the smart Welsh lad's sharp-angled trajectory from bullied sissy boy to major worldwide player in the drug-smuggling trade.
