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.

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.

This is a great "coming of age" movie, where a group of young men set out on a sort of criminal venture, only to discover who they are through all of the nonsense going on around them. It really is a good, multiple watch movie, the music is good, the actors are good, the story moves well.

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.

I've been a fan of Vin Diesel's pretty much since his acting career started. Knockaround Guys was a great movie, though a little slow at times. Bar fight scene was classic & best part of the movie. But I have to say that I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more action in this movie. A Man Apart was really good - a lot of action!!! I was very impressed with the emotion and rage shown by Vin in this movie. Boiler Room was okay, but kind of boring and the actors didn't seem to "fit well" together.

KNOCKAROUND GUYS is a decent gangster flick that could have been an episode of the SOPRANOS. What makes the film work is the cast and again, Vin Diesel shows he has screen presence. Also, sometimes just being a supporting character or being part of an ensemble is better than being the headliner. This is a pretty good ensemble with Barry Pepper (61*), Seth Green (IDLE HANDS),Vin Diesel (XXX), Dennis Hopper (SPEED), and John Malchovich (BEING JOHN MALCHOVICH). The plot is generic, but again the performances and characters bring the script and story up a notch. A Brooklyn gangster's, (Benny Demaret-Hopper) son Matty, (Pepper) wants to prove that he is up to be being more involved with the family business and is given an assignment to pick up a satchel of cash in Spokane Washington. He recruits his friend (Green), a pilot, to do the pick up with his airplane, but along the way the money ends up in a Montana hick town during a routine fueling stopover. First in the hands of two stoner baggage handlers, then in the hands of a small town corrupt Sheriff and his deputy. Matty then recruits the rest of his friends to retreive it, but it's not that easy because the Sheriff plays hardball. Matty then must call in the artillery, his gangster Uncle Teddy (Malchovich) and his henchmen. Then a a small twist happens when they come into the picture. The performances are restrained and not too over the top, but the Montana characters are stereotypical. The film moves along fine with an even pace and there's a great sequence with Matty and his three friends. They are trying to figure out how to get the money back as they are stuck in the small Montana town. Diesel's character states thay must find the toughest guy in town, beat the hell out of him, and then he'll pass along the information to whoever has their cash. Overall, an entertaining film saved by casting especailly the supporting role of Vin Diesel and a nice performance by the versatile Barry Pepper.
