Product Description

From the producers of the world's biggest action blockbusters - Joel Silver (The Matrix, Die Hard, Conspiracy Theory, the Lethal Weapon series) and Richard Donner (Maverick, Conspiracy Theory, the Lethal Weapon series) comes a story of a man (James Belushi - Gang Related, Red Heat) now in the Federal Witness Protection Program who just got caught stealing $12 million from some very bad men. Double crossed by his own wife (Vanessa Angel - Kingpin, King of New York), this former "made man" must outwit four mobsters sent to track him down and a crooked sheriff (Timothy Dalton - Rocketeer, License To Kill). Sometimes the only thing more dangerous than a loaded gun, is a loaded mouth. It's time to pay or play in a world where partnerships are made to be broken.

James Belushi is a former gangster in the Federal Witness Protection Program, hiding in the small redneck town of Harmony. Skipper, the mysterious mob boss Belushi worked for, discovers his whereabouts and sends four thugs to collect the $12 million Belushi had been stealing from him, and then whack him. Cross and double-cross ensues, as the fast-talking, street-smart Belushi cons his way from one harrowing bind to another. Throw into the mix a crooked redneck sheriff (Timothy Dalton) and the Belushi character's wife with questionable loyalties (Vanessa Angel), and you've got a fast-paced action comedy that keeps you guessing up to the end. The acting is solid, including Jamie Harris (son of Richard) as a British mobster with a knack for torture. One of the least appreciated components of film storytelling is pace, and Made Men has an impeccable knack for pacing. Kudos to director Louis Morneau (Bats) and veteran action film producers Joel Silver and Richard Donner for making this gem, which should have seen the dark light of the theater instead of being shuffled off direct to video. James Belushi deserves mention for a terrific performance, at once serious, convincing, and funny. --Jim Gay

They all chase each other all over the place, shooting and killing and stuff.

The action was good and the plot was just fine and the directing was just fine and the movie just kept rolling along.

Well, it is defintely action packed! To add to it, Vanessa Angel is always a sight to see and Belushi (just as Will Smith) has to put some of his comical wit throughout the flick! After being placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program, Belushi starts making plans with wifey Angel and some stolen bucks($12 mill) until the feds, the cops, the mob and some backwoods buddies start coming after him. Good lazy Sunday (early) afternoon flick to watch before a baseball or football game

A thief decides to make a risky journey without return: to steal the great Boss. That premise will be this sparkling point for this thundering who reminds us the first stage of The Cohen Brothers and Quentin Tarrantino.

Not a classic but who minds?

Made Men (1999) is two steps away from being a one-dimensional, lethan shoot
'em up action movie, adrenalin and caffeine packed; saved from that perilous
classificaton by the sense of humor of the actors, the charisma of the cast,
the chemistry on the screen, and sense of maturity overall in the acting.

The work clearly succeeds in taking the viewer in a time and space displacement,
to a small town called Harmony, in the Mid-West USA, where agricultural
properties are immense, and fertile. The psychological portrayal
of a small farm community, made up of perhaps 5,000 people, almost all farmers,
moonshiners and laborers, is convincing, despite minimal.

The marketing of this movie, suggests a theme related to the Sicilian Mob
or its legacy, or even, of the underworld. Yet, that is 180 degrees from the
real content of MADE MEN, as it has no European or Sicilian legacy, and no
sophistication shown in terms of "organized" subcultures, in the sense of the
the known NYC Families, whatsoever.

Those who financed this movie, wanted entertainment, and hired people who
excel in that aspect, and they professionally succeeded.

The quality of the filming - essential - is beyond reproach, with crisp,
focused, well edited sequences, coupled with panoramic wide-screen images that
are pleasing to the eyes, in terms of viewes getting a feel for the town, the
time and place of the action.

The special effects, are fantastic and incredibly real, which is remarkably
impressive for the otherwise mundane places where those occur, such as in
barns and around a farm. Still, those spectacular special effects could have
been improved, had more attention to detail been done.

This was a typical action movie and it had all the pieces to keep me entertained. James Belushi just seems to not be acting. He seems to just be in a pickle and gets out. The destruction in the movie seemed somewhat real. They did not blow up 10 story buildings leaving us to wonder who is going to pay for the millions of dollars in damages.

The action was good and the plot was just fine and the directing was just fine and the movie just kept rolling along. It was a pleasant movie to watch and I will watch it again. It may not have had the clever plot of "Taking Care of Business" but the plot was very good and I would rate the movie a solid 4 star and Taking Care of Business a solid 4 1/2 star.

I want to be entertained. The Predator, Leathal Weapon, Under Siege, Tin Cup, I love Trouble, and The Cutting Edge are my 5 star movies.
