We gave it an A-

Two subplots converge violently in when an Irish serial killer comes to America and gets involved with a Manhattan crack kingpin.

Grisliest Death
”Slide grabbed [him] by his lanky hair…and slit his throat from left to right. He stepped back, there was always a geyser.”

A loose follow-up to Ken Bruen and Jason Starr’s superb 2006 Bust (with a couple of the same characters), Slide is all genially ferocious menace.
