Angry Movie Lurker Review 18: Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead.(4 STARS)

This is a bit of a classic with me about a bunch of 5 criminals who screw a simple job up big time for the man with the plan (Christopher Walken, brilliant) and the ensuing problems when a hit man (Steve Buscemi) is dispatched to settle the score for said man.Jimmy the Saint(Andy Garcia, quality as always) who is initially given the job and puts the rest of the crew together to scare a guy(that doesn't happen and things go to hell), the rest of the crew Pieces (Christopher Lloyd), Critical Bill (Treat Williams, incredibly good), William Forsythe (Franchise) and Easy Wind (Bill Nunn).
There are side stories all over as the story unfolds with Jimmy trying to get everyone away from the reprisals, love interests with Gabrielle Anwar and Fairuza Balk(very well done) and going out in style, this is an excellent character driven story and will introduce new words to your vocabulary like Buckwheats, Boatdrinks and to a lesser extent MammyRammer.......and as always my favourite a touch of revenge and a good ending? 

You will agree with what Critical Bill says to Jimmy about the initial job going wrong and want to kill him aswell.


  1. I love this movie, Walken refuses to do bad movies.

  2. Yep a definite classic... good call. What's next? Usual Suspects?

  3. Buscemi is unnerving in this film, and Walken is awesome as always. You've got a fine site here check out mine

  4. Great flick! Everybody was at the top of their game. Especially Treat Williams.
