the gangland streets known as Hell's Kitchen a group of boys
vow to support and protect each other. Years later two of
them become involved in a money laundering scheme that goes
seriously wrong, incurring the wrath of the local crime boss.
When one of the group is discovered dead, supposedly of a
drugs overdose, Frank learns the truth that he was killed.
The most obvious suspect is the crime boss, but is it that
lords, street gangs, drug dealers, Mafia mobsters or gangsters;
they all meld into one messy blob as far as I'm concerned.
Perhaps I'm not the best person to pass judgement on this
film, because this is just about the worst genre there is.
I think it's probably due to the fact the subject is all so
clichéd, and One Eyed King is no exception.
You can pretty much guess the events which will take place:
stabbings, shootings, beatings, double-dealing and constant
threats against the backdrop of strict Catholicism and strong
family ties (yeah, right!) where they love their own like
brothers until they turn their backs.
is an even more convincing example of stereotyping. Italian
(or Irish) Americans with slick-back hair (usually called
Gino, Toni or Louis) put cotton wool in their cheeks and talk
with dodgy Mafia-like accents.
this might seem like rambling, but it gets my point across.
This film achieves nothing in dispelling the myth. Predictable
and monotonously conventional.
