Dark Cop Thriller - Romeo Is Bleeding review by GI

Spoiler Alert
09/04/2021

A dark, twisted and slightly sordid neo-noir crime thriller with Gary Oldman as corrupt NYPD cop Jack Grimaldi. He's an informant for the mob revealing the location of witnesses so they can be murdered before testifying. But being a serial womaniser despite his marriage to Natalie (Annabella Sciorra) Jack finds himself under the spell of mob assassin Mona (Lena Olin) and he soon finds he's targeted by the mob, his police colleagues and Mona. There's strong elements of the Chandleresque detective stories of the 40s here and the femme fatale character in the guise of Mona who manipulates the narrative. There's strong performances in this convoluted story but it tends towards too much exposition as the plot drifts into a muddle. Oldman is always very watchable but here there's a little too much of his Lee Harvey Oswald on show so he doesn't always convince as the weary cop with secrets. There's some underused talent in the film including James Cromwell, Will Patton and Juliette Lewis. A thriller worth checking out but it's not a film that stays in the mind.
