We gave it an D

Quentin Tarantino has a lot to answer for. Ever since the success of Pulp Fiction, it seems like 9 out of 10 low-budget crime stories are nothing but yack yack yack bang yack yack yack. Populated by a horde of pseudo-spooky psychopaths in shiny suits, this one is the maudlin tale of Denis Leary’s quest to (a) avenge his father’s murder and (b) talk Joe Mantegna’s ear off. Boring, pompous, and — even at 95 minutes — overlong, Underworld underwhelms. D
