As an Action/Crime/Drama, Kiss of Death starring David Caruso & Nick Cage is excellent! Maybe one reason why this film is so good is that it is based off a 1947 film noir classic. David Caruso plays a very serious and sometimes humorous role as Jimmy Kilmartin and deserves a lot of credit for an all-consuming performance. Nick Cage serves up a hilarious & gorilla like performance as Little Junior Brown! This is a gritty New York crime drama with great performances from Ving Rhames and Michael Rapaport as well. I own this film on VHS and have watched it several times over the years. For any fans of crime movies, this is one you definitely want to check out! I have included a link to the Amazon DVD if you are interested in purchasing this wild film noir update.
