Two Line Reviews -#164

Movie: Mean Streets (1973)

Plot: Two low profile wannabe-thugs share fun and life in the mean streets of a city. When one owes a debt to a bigger thug, the problems start for the duo. One's association with a don and his love with the cousin of the other magnifies the problems!

  • Some of the carefree & 'take things easy' manoeuvre's of the GANG of thugs are good to watch.
  • De Niro & Keitel share good screen presence.
  • Scorsese's usage of constant soundtracks behind the scenes, as always, is good.
The film fails to move. There is not much substance.

Watchable if you are a De Niro/Scorsese fan;Avoidable otherwise!
