After all the negative things I heard about this movie, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. Sure, it was cheesy, and the script left a lot to be desired, but it really held my attention for 110 minutes. Good performances by Dominic West and Timothy Spall. I do think Mark Wahlberg was completely mis-cast. I'm trying to think who I would have preferred in the "Izzy" role, but no one comes to mind. So in any event, I'm by no means calling it a great movie, but IMHO, it was 110 minutes of pure entertainment.
