It would be so easy to write off 10th as a Mafia B-movie with A-list actors. But you know what? Sometimes toughing it out through been-there-done-that stories is worth it. Think of Wolf as comfort food for people who could watch Goodfellas all day long but need a break every now and then. Some plot basics: James Marsden gets himself discharged from the Marines.
Instead of doing time behind bars, Tommy goes home to South Philly to wear a wire and hook back up with his old buddies from the hood--Giovanni Ribisi and Brad Renfro--who are up to no good. But the FBI don't wanna take down these kids; they're after a Sicilian gangster. Capisce? Sure, you'll chuckle at Ribisi, who may actually have cotton balls in his cheeks sometimes, but the story picks up during the last 45 minutes. Checking out 10th is an offer you can refuse--but shouldn't. You get to laugh, see some blood and even get choked up a couple of times. Not too shabby, eh?
