In Barbet Schroeder's gritty thriller, David Caruso is an ex-con who's lured back into a life of crime for one last heist. When a detective (Samuel L. Jackson) offers him his freedom in return for turning on a gangster (Nicolas Cage), he becomes a reluctant pawn caught between federal agents and the mob. Helen Hunt, Stanley Tucci and Michael Rapaport co-star in this stylish, streetsmart film noir.

Cast & Crew
What's most effective about the new Kiss of Death is Tucci's marvelously slimy prosecutor.
A crackling thriller that feels unusually attuned to its lowlife characters.
Cage and Caruso strike sparks in this riveting piece of pulp fiction, but it's that first Kiss you'll remember.
It's a sleek, muscular thriller played by a terrific ensemble cast...
A riveting crime drama.
Cage, one of the few American actors who gets more interesting from film to film, comes close to kidnaping the picture as Little Junior, a pumped-up but asthmatic thug who, like King Kong, is a gorilla with a wistful air about him.
