I might be going a little hard at this movie, but I thought it was very flat and boring. The story was terrible as it was extremely undeveloped. I guess this might have opened the doors for future movies, but as far as the movie itsself and the viewer experience, I think it was terrible. I have no idea what I just watched. No memories from the movie will be stuck in my mind, cause there were no memorable moments. I felt like it was a bunch of scenes just thrown together in no particular order. I seem to be alone on this, but I found it to be a nothing movie.

King of New York is one of the number 1 all time Crime movies ever. This classic features Christopher Walken was a believable Don and his acting was outstanding. This has to be one of Laurence Fishburne first movies as well as Wesley Snipes. King of New is the typical drug dealer movie but the cinematography is outstanding. The camera takes you straight into the action. Great direction by Abel Ferrara. One of my favorites in this Genre.

"King Of New York" by Yojimbo

Crimelord Frank White is released from jail and sets about reclaiming the New York underworld and shaping it in his own image. King Of New York can be seen very much as the Scarface of the 90s. It has much of its excess, including a larger than life central character played with Walken's usual panache, explosions of visceral action and is all set very much within the popular culture of its time; in this case the gang related culture of early hip hop. This is the film which cemented Walken's reputation as psycho of choice for up and coming directors and Laurence Fishburne's manic turn as a gleeful hitman almost steals the show. It's a very influential formula, obviously making an impact on Tarantino and his contemporaries, and the whole recipe of old school hip hop and late 80s fashions wh...
