I am surprised that Robert DeNiro and Tommy Lee Jones would lend their names and talent to this poor excuse for a motion picture.  It was full of unnecessary violence; and unrealistic portrayal of organized crime; and unfit language coming out of the mouths of teenagers.  I WOULD RECOMMEND AGAINST ANYONE SEEING THIS FILM. It was a waste of good money for admission and a box of popcorn.
