There's not much to be said about this flick apart from its thespian quality. If you didn't know gary Oldman was a Brit you'd have him pegged as a Brooklyn hood.

When a young man (Penn) returns home to New York after a long absence he falls in with his childhood friend, now a mobster under the thrall of the young man's big boss brother (Harris).

He wants to go straight and has to decide which is more important when danger rears its head and the people he loves are threatened.

Sound familiar? Sure it is, but it's no less watchable as a result.
