Daniel W (nl) wrote: Scenes are beautiful and tensed, but it slowly falls out of pace as it approaches the end. Bad marketing could contribute to the bad ratings it received, but it is understandably low as a art film. Those who takes this as a crime saga shouldn't be paying for the movie. In the end the art compromised the storytelling and obscured the story. To put it simple = style over story.

David L (jp) wrote: I like crude humour and I like horror films, which makes this the perfect genre mash up. Spoofing a whole host of teen slashers that I grew up on, I can pretty much relate to every line of dialogue that is spoken here. To some that is sad, but to me, that is entertainment. If you haven't seen 'Scream', or 'I Know What You Did LastSummer' then it's not the end of the world as the wit is still rib tickling in its own right, but the references to those films do play a big part and for those familiar with the 90's cult classics, you'll see how clever their stories have been interwoven into this script. The fact that I haven't tired of watching this movie must suggest that I haven't grown up as a person but that's cool with me, as I always wanted to be like Peter Pan. Having witnessed the numerous sequels this has spawned, it's safe to say that this one has yet to be bettered but perhaps that is just a reflection of a poorer range of horrors being developed since 20 years ago. Not one for all tastes I'll admit, but thus just holds too much history with me to do anything but love it.

Aj V (ru) wrote: I really loved Harlow's performance in this movie, her character is crazy, using her feminine wiles to get every man's attention, and the lengths she goes to get these guys...wow. The story is good, but close to the end it slows down a bit and gets a bit confusing, and I'm not sure if I liked how it ended. Overall, I liked it though, it was a really interesting movie.

Jack G (br) wrote: Paradise Alley is set in 1946 in the dingy and dirty streets of Hell's Kitchen- or the Bowery, take your pick, maybe more like the Bowery- and is centered on a group of characters, specifically three brothers, and how they try to maintain in their squalor or, as it turns out, try and make a way for themselves to get out. It's a sentimental picture as it tries to act super tough and muscular, and it's kind of like a Saturday afternoon movie for the guys who have already seen Rocky and Rambo flicks too many times and want to see something sort of "different". It certainly is. And not always in a good way.What I liked was seeing how the actors playing the brothers interacted. Cosmo, Victor and Lenny are impressionable and work very well as this trio dynamic. One had high aspirations and has a big mouth but a fairly good heart, another is a crippled war hero who's life has not worked out at all like he might have wanted for himself or his girl, and the other is a fairly content and BIG-sized ice delivery man who finds himself needing money to want that boat house. I liked also how Stallone put these characters against the lumbering idiot gangsters who were too bumbling to really make it as big-shots but could be threatening enough to other bums and the like in the neighborhood. Not to mention the character and performance of Frank McRae as the 40-something wrestler who lives in total degradation even as he's very good at what he does. Oh, and Tom Waits of course, for a role that is merely a blip but one that brings a smile all the same.The problems seem to come for Stallone that he isn't confident enough to take the material where it needs to go as a down-and-dirty grungy street flick. He gussies it up with over-blown camera moves and editing tricks (I hated the freeze-screen effects used), and seem to not always be as strong with dealing with melodrama and the natural way people talk as he did in the first Rocky. If there was a time to make this story maybe it was right after he has his first big success, and then move on to more conventional stuff. But it is at times fairly schmaltzy, and not all of the acting is very good (the female actresses are all pretty weak, and for a couple of good scenes Lee Canalito feel really flat as the "happy" wreslter brother dubbed "The Salami"). Stallone and Asante fare better with the material, and even Stallone himself goes hammy with his own words in some scenes; Stallone is Stallone, not a Pacino or De Niro, so heavy-duty dramatic scenes don't seem to cut it out as well.And yet, the film does have its moments. I especially dug that final wrestling match, the two contenders (the other being, I think, Terry Funk) duking it out as a rain storm is coming down in the arena and the power keeps cutting in and out with lightning effects thrown in. Stallone does make this an epic and nasty and brutal final bout, and it does bring a pretty satisfying completion to a film that is enjoyable but too clichd by half.
