Format: DVD
A Good Night to Die is a down and dirty New York film.
It is about a likable hit man named Ronnie, his not so
bright protege, August, and a eventful day in their
lives.
Michael Rappaport gives the most powerful performance
of his career as the dim witted and intense student of
the hit man arts. Gary Stretch plays the main
character who goes to extreme lengths to protect his
protege whom he feels responsible for bringing into
their world. I've never heard of Mr. Stretch but I'm
sure we all will very soon. He seems to jump off the
screen and sit in your lap.
A entirely unrecognizable Ralph Macchio plays a
psychotic killer with his partner (you never really
know their exact relationship, but whatever it is,
it's really weird) played by Ally Sheedy (always a
bonus to see Ralph Macchio and Ally Sheedy play a
murderous, psychotic duo)
Deborah Harry and Seymour Casell play rival mob bosses
but this is more than your standard "the mob is after
me" kind of movie.
The movie is filmed mainly in the streets of New York
City. You can practically smell the city. One
particular rooftop assassination scene really stands
out. There was something very disturbing and wrong
about how the person was done in.
I highly recommend this movie.

I will tell you upfront. I bought it for the cameo made by Deborah Harry and watched the film afterwards.
Briefly, the film is a day in the life of,Ronnie,(Gary Stretch), a gangster who spends it trying to save the life of fellow hit man, August, who he had brought into the business three years ago. August (Michael Rapaport) has become a real problem for some of the bosses around town. If it is any indication of the film quality and impact, all I remember is the scene where Ronnie meets rival criminal, Madison (Deborah Harry). I remember nothing else of the film but that it was of good enough quality to show quests into the genre.

Ever watch a movie that you can't get out of your head the next day, this is one of those films. The plot twists and turns and keeps you on your feet with the introduction of new characters who need to find their place. In the end, the film ties together nicely and leaves you feeling sorry for two hit men!!!
Definitely not your main stream thriller. The film is imaginative and you won't walk away feeling jaded.

"A Good Night to Die" is another one of the "hitman" films that are so commonplace nowadays. Some of the best of them include (in order of lifetime gross) "Pulp Fiction" (1994), Tom Cruise's "Collateral" (2004), the "Kill Bill" series (2003, 2004), Timothy Olliphant's "Hitman" (2007), the John Cusack comedy "Grosse Point Blank" (1997), and Luc Besson's "The Professional" (1994). Hitman films go back many decades to the classic Alan Ladd "This Gun for Hire" (1942).

The film stars Michael Rapaport, Gary Stretch, and Seymour Cassel with a strong cast that includes Ally Sheedy ("The Breakfast Club"), James Russo, Ralph Macchio ("The Karate Kid"), Lainie Kazan ("My Big Fat Greek Wedding"), Robin Givens, and Deborah Harry ("Blondie").

Former British boxer Gary Stretch is best known for his work as a psycho in "Dead Man's Shoes" (2004) and as Cleitus in "Alexander" (2004). He's been in several films by Craig Singer, this film's producer/director. Stretch plays a Hitman trying to help his friend who is threatened with being hit due to his incompetence.

Michael Rapaport is not a well known name but you've seen his face in more than 50 films. He's probably best known as Frank from "My Name is Earl" (2007-8) and as Don Self from "Prison Break" (2008-9). Rapaport plays Stretch's hitman friend who is in trouble.

The excellent supporting cast appears almost exclusively in one scene. And while they all do a great job, one short scene is not enough.

Seymour Cassel is the veteran in this film that features younger actors. Cassel started in the business in 1959 and has more than 200 roles to his credit. He was nominated for an Oscar for "Faces" (1968).

This "Pulp Fiction"-esque crime odyssey has more hysterical colorful characters than Oz has flying monkeys! If for no other reason, see this movie for Ally Sheedy and Ralph Macchio's turn as brother and sister hit team Donnie and Marie. Of course, there's also Deborah "Blondie" Harry as a New York crime lord; Michael Rapaport, unforgettable, as a bumbling hit man prodigy; and a slew of amazing cameos by Robin Givens, Lanie Kazan, Frank Whaley, and more. The myriad New York City locations pack grit and atmosphere like the A train packs bitter commuters. But, unlike the underground railway, this ticket buys a fantastic ride.
