Knockaround Guys

Matty Demaret is the son of mob boss Benny Chains. When he was twelve, it became clear that Matty didn’t have the stomache to be a mobster and ever since his dad hasn’t looked at him as a real man. Matty has been trying to get a normal job, but everywhere he goes his dad’s name keeps haunting him so he decides that if everyone thinks he’s a mobster, he could just as well become one. Except his dad of course.

One day, he and his friends get the chance to proove themselves. They need to make sure a bag filled with money gets across the country to Brooklyn. As such it sounds like a simple job, but when the bad gets stolen at an airport near a small town things turn for the worse…

Sound and Vision:
There are some very minor compression errors but overall the image quality is decent. Certain scenes are a bit on the dark side and could use some more detail though.

The sound does what it needs to do. Nothing special here.

Knockaround Guys is a fun movie that contains some comedy, some action and a reasonably simple storyline that is uplifted by the decent acting. One shouldn’t take this film too seriously, but if you set your expectations right (not too high, don’t expect Godfather-like stuff) it will manage to entertain you as long as it lasts. If you’re looking for a film that will be able to keep you interested for 88 minutes and has a nice plot twist near the end, then Knockaround Guys is definitely one you should give a try.
