Russel and Scorcese, soundtrack that couldn't possibly complement the pictures in motion any better and a captivating plot with the necessary twists.
He also has a weakness for damsels in distress and will walk through fire for a woman he feels is in danger.
But somehow the very ending always left me a tiny bit unsatisfied and felt a little bit too much like a cliché action flick ending, in stead of a typical melancholic neo-noir ending, which I personally am a bigger fan of. The film still has way too much good stuff going for it, that I can't help but freaking LOVE it.
