3.0 out of 5 stars A group of so-so films starring a very good actor September 19, 2009
MGM is commemorating its 85th anniversary this year with a large group of star collections. The only problem is, MGM no longer owns its own films made prior to the year 1986. Thus the stars involved in these collections are not the ones you traditionally associate with MGM. Instead, MGM owns the film catalog of United Artists and the Sam Goldwyn Company, and this is where these films are coming from. This is one of the more modern collections in the group featuring Mickey Rourke, who was a long time out of the public eye until his come-back role in "The Wrestler". There he displayed sensitive charm underneath an often battered exterior that first made him a star. Unfortunately, these are not his best films. The Pope of Greenwich Village is probably the best in the group, but the other three are not that great, although Rourke gives a good performance in all of them.

Disc 1: Desperate Hours - (1990 - MGM) - Directed by Michael Cimino costarring Anthony Hopkins. Rourke plays a criminal who escapes during his trial along with two of his cohorts. In the course of their escape they take a family hostage that has problems of their own.
Disc 2: Pope Of Greenwich Village (1984 - United Artists) - Directed by Stuart Rosenberg costarring Eric Roberts - character study involving a heist the profits of which are to go to betting on what is believed to be a sure-fire winner at the race track.
Disc 3 Side A: Prayer for The Dying - (1987 - Sam Goldwyn company) - directed by Mike Hodges costarring Bob Hoskins. A rather overly complicated plot involving two crimes that go wrong with only bad options involved in escaping either of them. Hodges actually wanted his name removed from the direction credits because he was unhappy with the final product.
