Description

Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the WWI vet is a selfproclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, and both work against him, leaving him vulnerable time and again—in business and in love. Driven by a need to right the wrongs committed against him and those close to him, Joe heads down a risky path that goes against his upbringing and his own moral code. Leaving the cold Boston winter behind, he and his reckless crew turn up the heat in Tampa. And while revenge may taste sweeter than the molasses that infuses every drop of illegal rum he runs, Joe will learn that it comes at a price.

  • Alright. Fine for a flight or a hangover.

    I enjoyed it. I watched it after reading the reviews in here. I found DDspace's particularly useful. He or she admits to not having seen the film, criticises the pithiness of another's comments and does so in capital letters. Probably the most useless review I've ever seen, infinitely more so than Tom's or even this one.

    Wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. It just about held my interest and I watched it all, but nothing special. Average.

    Rented for a short plane journey, got close to turning it off. It looks good, and some bits are OK but a very forgettable movie.
  • Hugley underrated

    This is not just a gangster movie, it is the epic story of a man who cannot let go of the violence and brutality of war. But most of all, it is also a story of love, loss and redemption.

    Amazed that this film got a 34% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This is a very violent and well paced gangster film with great performances and visual brilliance. This is a perfect example of critics talking rubbish! Well worth buying.
