Critic Reviews for Monument Ave.
All the camaraderie aside, these are not particularly likable characters, yet [Leary] still manages to make you care about Bobby. It's been a long time since even Robert DeNiro pulled that one off, and Leary deserves as much credit as he can get.
There is a whole genre of films about childhood friends still living in the old neighborhood and going down the drain of crime and drugs. Few of them capture the fatigue and depression, and the futility, as well as this one.
Though very much in the vein of Scorsese's masterpiece Mean Streets, Ted Demme's bleak and downbeat tale has its distinctive merits, not least of which is the acting.
Prefectly entertaining "gangs, guns & streets" tale.
A realistic, hard-boiled peek at an old Irish, close-knit neighborhood, in Boston's blue-collar Charlestown section.
Audience Reviews for Monument Ave.
While it may be familiar, Monument Ave is gritty, realistic, and certainly an authentic depiction of the bleak nature of the 'mean streets'. Denis Leary is especially convincing.
