Review: Chicago Overcoat

The fates of an aging hit man (Vincent) and a washed up detective (Goldring) become entwined, when one last job leads to one last chance to settle an old score.

Marking his feature directorial debut, Brian Caunter brings together an all-star, award-winning cast, including Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), Kathrine Narducci (A Bronx Tale, The Sopranos), Mike Starr (Goodfellas, Dumb & Dumber), Stacy Keach (W., American History X) and Armand Assante (American Gangster, Hoffa). 

CHICAGO OVERCOAT was produced by John W. Bosher (Broke, Devil's Dominoes), and the screenplay was written by Josh Staman (Deadfall Trail), Andrew Dowd, John W. Bosher, and Brian Caunter.  The film also stars Danny Goldring, Tim Gamble, Gina D'Ercoli, Robert Gerdisch, Mark Vallarta, and Barret Walz.

My husband and I watched Chicago Overcoat and it was a pretty good movie.  We both enjoy gangster films and gruesome scenes, so this film was right up our alley.  I liked the plot and the acting was good.  I did think it was a bit dry in areas but definitely worth seeing.  If you like this type of movie, then you have to see Chicago Overcoat.

DVD features include: Closed Captioned, 16:9 widescreen format, 5.1 Dolby digital surround sound, 2 behind-the-scenes documentaries - "What is a Chicago Overcoat?" and "The Tommy Gun Shootout," deleted scenes, trailers, and optional Spanish subtitles.
