James Marsden stars as Tommy an ex-Marine who gets roped into going undercover in the old neighbourhood in this film from CRASH co-writer Robert Moresko. Giovanni Ribisi plays his cousin Joey the slightly unhinged boss of the local crime family--theyve been friends since they were kids. Brad Renfro is Vincent Tommys dim-witted younger brother and Joeys right-hand man after Tommy left to join the Marines. There are lots of violent flashbacks to when all these guys brawled around the old neighbourhood and went to mob funerals. Now theres a villainous Italian drug lord trying to seize control and a turf war is imminent. Its up to Tommy to take the drug lord down without getting his little brother killed or Joey arrested in the process. Piper Perabo (COYOTE UGLY) is Tommys love interest an attractive mob widow now tending bar at a strip club co-owned by the coke-snorting thug who killed her husband (Dash Mihok). Episodic and entertaining 10th AND WOLF plays out like a greatest-hits collection of scenes from other mob movies but this is not a bad thing. An array of well-known names show up in bit parts Leslie Ann Warren is great as Joeys falling-down-drunk of a mother Dennis Hopper is an old-time Mafia guy Val Kilmer is a deranged bar patron Tommy Lee is one of Joeys crew and Brian Dennehy is an unscrupulous federal agent.
