User Ratings: 320
Rating: 42/100 -- From start to finish, it feels like an amalgam of various other crime movies.
Apollo Guide

Robotic acting and outtakes from the Stigmata soundtrack complement the perfunctory plot, while the dialogue indulges massive backstorytelling and desperate iteration. Full Review

Rating: D -- It's less than ordinary in every which way. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Dec 25, 2002
Seems to be cut from the same cloth as almost every low-budget mobster film.
Planet S Magazine

For an updated -- but not revisionist -- version of Dead End or Angels With Dirty Faces or even Mean Streets, you could do worse. Full Review
Film Journal International
May 11, 2001
Rating: 1.5/5 -- The performances are correspondingly overblown and the soundtrack inundated with grandiose choral music and mediocre hard rock.
New York Times

It may not be as epochal a piece of work as Mean Streets, but packs what feels like a real-life punch none the less. Full Review

Product Description:

Two years after he is released from a prison, reformed heroin addict Ryan (Michael Rodrick) returns to Astoria, Queens for the funeral of his youngest brother Jimmy, another junkie who died from a "hot shot" under the infamous Hellgate Bridge. Ryan discovers that his brother, Eddie (Brian Vincent), is still using, and is trying to move into the business that killed Jimmy and put Ryan in jail. Adding to Ryan's pain, his ex-girlfriend Carla (Jordan Bayne), who set him up to go to jail, is now married to his adversary, small-time mobster Vincent (Jonathan LaPaglia). Watching Eddie going though the same torture that he once experienced, Ryan is faced with a dilemma: if he leaves, he won't be able to take care of Eddie, but if he stays, his rivalry with Vincent could destroy them all. Shot in the dark of bars, the dim twilight, and overcast greys of morning, UNDER HELLGATE BRIDGE lends the impression of a dying city, the death of family, and the end of a way of life. First-time director Michael Sergio has created a very personal film, wrought with the desperation and desolation of the Old West in contemporary New York.
