We gave it a D+

Brimming with tough guys (Penn, Madsen, Tom Sizemore), this Rust Belt snoozer drowns in its own palooka-speak. ”It took me a long time to find out the tail I was chasing wasn’t really attached to a dog,” says Sizemore’s moody drifter. ”It wasn’t really attached to anything.” That nugget could describe the ”story,” which consists mainly of protracted brooding over jobs lost to ”subcontinent countries.” Blah. D+
