Knockaround Guys

So it will be mobsters tonight and what better than a film staring Dennis Hooper, John Malkovich, Tom Noonan, Barry Pepper, Vin Diesel and my favorite little dude Seth Green. The premise is that Matty, played by Pepper, is trying to win the favor of his mobster father and enlists his friends to do a job that goes horribly wrong when Green loses the package to some stoner kids and then corrupt local cops. The stand out performances here are by Diesel as a tough street thug, who would have guessed, and Malkovich as the second in command with his own agenda. Is there any role that Malkovich can not play and not play well? A fun little movie along the lines of Mobsters and Sleepers but not as deep if that can be said with a straight face.
