Synopsis: Lowlife louts loiter, lockup local liquor lounge.
Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “An intense, all-star action-thriller, Albino Aligator is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey [1995 Best Supporting Actor – The Usual Suspects]. Matt Dillon [Beautiful Girls] and Gary Sinise [Forrest Gump] play brothers Dova and Milo...a couple of small-time crooks suddenly in way over their heads! When a holdup goes terribly wrong, the robbers flee to a local bar, desperately taking everyone inside hostage!”
What Did I Learn?: If a member of your gang feels the need to qualify the sentence “I promise not to kill any hostages” with “unless I have to”, you probably want to keep an eye on him.
You Might Like This Movie If: The words “alligator” and "hostage" were all you needed to hear.
Really?: Is it really a good idea to own a basement bar in New Orleans?
Rating: I’m not a huge fan of hostage-taking thrillers because you know they’re probably going to end badly, but Albino Alligator isn’t a bad film. It’s a study of people under pressure, and changing group dynamics as the situation becomes more complicated. 7/10 stars.
