Upon his return, Danny is forced to make a risky decision.
“u0026quot;Southieu0026quot; is worth a look. We have seen this movie before, only that now instead of being about Italian-Americans, it depicts Irish-Americans in Boston. As directed by John Shea, it misses the mark, but it shows a director who shows a lot of promise, as we already know him as an excellent film actor.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe film has an improvised look, which might have been the case, but weu0026#39;ll never know. The different Boston heavy accents stand in the way for enjoying it much more, in my humble opinion.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDonnie Wahlberg shows his usual intensity. Rose McGowan, as Kathy, shows she has the potential to do bigger and better things. As the Quinn matriarch, it was a pleasure to see Anne Meara, a wonderful actress and a great human being in real life.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLetu0026#39;s hope Mr. Shea will come out with a better film the next time out.”
