4.0 out of 5 stars It's tough being a Mobster anymore March 16, 2003
In my days at a young age, a pre-teen boy might simply aspire to a Scout merit badge. In KNOCKAROUND GUYS, 11 year-old Matty has already demonstrated to his father, Benny Chains (Dennis Hopper), that he doesn't have what it takes to join the Old Man's business. Benny is a Chicago Mafia kingpin. So, by the time the boy's a young man (now played by Barry Pepper), he's completely without direction. Matty has long accepted the fact that he hasn't got what it takes to work for and impress Dad, and he can't seem to land a legit 9 to 5. So, now what?
Then, opportunity knocks. Benny needs a handbag picked up at the Spokane airport and brought back to the Windy City. Matty begs for, and receives, the assignment. Rather than go himself, he gets his friend, Johnny Marbles (Seth Green), to fly his Beechcraft to Washington to make the connection. Marbles, who has the reputation for being a screw-up, is also a mobster's drifting kid. On his return flight, Johnny manages to lose the bag - filled with $500,000 - on a gas stop at the tiny airport that serves Wibaux, Montana. (Yes, Mabel, there really is a Wibaux - on Interstate 84 just west of the North Dakota state line.)
Matty and two other discontented pals of Mob lineage, the dapper Chris (Andrew Davoli) and tough guy Taylor (Vin Diesel), arrive to help recover the dough before Benny goes ballistic. That's when things really go into the toilet.
KNOCKAROUND GUYS is a coming-of-age story with a twist (albeit at an unusually late age for such Hollywood fairy tales). Part of the film's attraction can perhaps be traced to the viewing public's current love affair with such murderous offerings as THE SOPRANOS. Certain scenes in KNOCKAROUND GUYS are decidedly violent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why, Seth, why!!!! September 4, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Okay. By my title you can tell I am a Seth Green fan. I love the guy. Thought Oz was the best character ever. Then on a bad stormy day (in my mind) I learned that Seth was leaving Buffy to do a movie Knockaround guys. It was hard at first, but I got over it as long as I got to watch the movie. Well two years later the movie is released. You think. However, it was decided to held back until Vin Disl became famous. So I don't watch it at the theater because the one in my town is too small. So I stupidly decide to buy just cause Seth is in it. Big Mistake!! One I was bored, two there was maybe one scene I liked, and three Seth died in it. So if you are a Seth fan and you want to see it because of him, rent it first and if you like it then go ahead and buy it. You have been warned.

4.0 out of 5 stars great film February 27, 2003
Knockaround Guys didn't spend much time in the theaters (at least not around here), but it is a movie I wanted to see badly. And it doesn't disappoint. Barry Pepper gives a great performance. Vin Diesel actually acts in this movie, rather than just relying on his size and 'action-hero' status. Seth Green's performance is uneven, but more often than not he plays his role (as an unlikeable guy) very well. Dennis Hopper plays Benny Chains, the mob underboss. There's nothing spectacular about his performance, but it is solid. John Malkovich is brilliant, even if his accent is not. Tom Noonan is the breakout star here. He plays his role as a crooked sherrif great (and very dark). This is Brian Koppelman and David Levien's first time at directing, and they also wrote the film (Lawrence Bender produced it). All in all, it is a pretty good movie. Well worth seeing. It's a mafia movie that is both what we expect and something new. The dvd contains a handful of deleted/alternate scenes (with and without commentary) and an insightful commentary track by the directors.

This was a great little movie. It was definitely top loaded on talent - John Malkovich, Dennis Hopper, Barry Pepper, Seth Green, Vin Diesel, Andrew Davoli. It was a new twist on a New York mobster tale as they all head off to Montana, of all places.

Some humor, some drama, some violence (Vin Diesel plays a great enforcer - very believable), treachery, bad cops, some good mobsters. It wasn't Scarface but it's well worth watching.

2.0 out of 5 stars A coming of age mobster movie? January 4, 2004
By A Customer
Matty Demaret (Barry Pepper) is the son of a New York mob boss who has been convinced he has no stomach for his father's line of work; mostly by his uncle, Teddy Deserve (John Malkovich). Mobster children not having a stomach for the work is apparently as common as bananas in Central America, so this shouldn't be a big deal, but Matty still wants to work. The problem is Matty's family name prevents him from finding work elsewhere. Thus, the movie begins with him finally convincing both his father and his Uncle (who is his father's second in command) that he can handle a job for the 'organization' since it is only going to involve transporting something and not killing anyone.
The mission is to transport some money from the Midwest back to New York. The money is a loan from a friendly mob to help Matty's father as he plugs some of the holes in his operation (someone is stealing his money). One of Matty's close friends, Johnny Marbles (Seth Green), is a pilot, and Matty gets him to make the run. But on the way back to New York with the money, Johnny has to temporarily ditch it when he stops for gas at an airport to avoid the suspicion of some authorities. When he returns for the bag of money, it's gone.
Matty then gets two of his closest friends, Chris Scarpa (Andrew Davoli) and Taylor Reese (Vin Diesel) to join him and Johnny in podunk Montana to track down the money. Two stereotyped skateboarder airline employees found the bag and have begun to treat themselves to some of the money. But the father of one of the boys, Sheriff Decker (Tom Noonan), catches up with his son and finds the money. Quickly realizing why Matty and his friends are in town, the Sheriff decides to split the money with his deputy and kill the Knockaround Guys (Matty and his friends).
