The Reviews for Phoenix (1998) 1080p

Anthony LaPaglia down and dirty. I knew he could do it.Reviewed byhelen-13Vote: 7/10

Even though he's had many thankless, boringly bland roles, I've always thought that Anthony LaPaglia had more range than he was allowed to show us. Phoenix proves me right. Although, Mike (LaPaglia)is not the main character, he's the malignant force behind the movie that drives all the action to it's inevitable end. Mike is a foul, completely unrepentant, morally corrupt cop with a permanent stubble and a paunch that hides his physical strength. His eyes, glinting windows on his ugly world, show us that he's always calculating the odds, weighing the outcomes, checking out the angles to make situations serve his purposes. He's a keen, if cynical, judge of character and smart in an animal-like way. All this puts him at odds with his friend and fellow cop, Harry, (Ray Liotta) the main character. Harry's more of a wounded psyche type, chronic gambler with a heart of gold, haunted by his father's credo that you don't welsh on a bet and you don't rat on others, especially your friends. Once Harry states these core beliefs, you know how this is going to work out for him.

The movie is put together very well: excellent performances by all (Giancarlo Esposito, as slimy loan shark and Jeremy Piven as weak, whipped cop are standouts), well-plotted, if familiar storyline, with appropriate pacing. Angelika Huston is wasted in a small role, but the backstory that her character suggests adds significantly to Harry's characterization.

A Good Drama to Watch in a Booth by YourselfReviewed bysmile-55031Vote: 10/10

This movie is full of photo imagery that makes it suspenseful and a compelling drama. I feel like it's one of those movies you need to sit in a booth by yourself and watch it to fully be engulfed in the story.

The acting is okay, but the story line is good and compelling. Phoenix has nothing to do with the city in Arizona, so if you are thinking about that then just get it out of your mind. The superstitious nature of the characters keeps you on the edge of your seat. The photo booth scene was the best.

I highly recomend renting this, it is definitely worth it!

A Gambler Implodes!Reviewed bygeorgewilliamnobleVote: 7/10

Few play flawed good guys who are bad guy's better than Ray Liotta and he is in his element in this movie about bad cops going down. All the elements of classic "film Noir" are here, even though this is a film in which the result is less than the sum of it's parts. None the less it is all very watchable even though the plot comes over rather stilted as a compendium of many other similar and largely better movies. Still for Ray Liotta's performance alone this 20 year old movie is worth watching, one more time.
