ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review [Bullet] One of the most visually accomplished directors to come to prominence in the '80s (with credits such as Absolute Beginners and Earth Girls Are Easy), Bullet is indeed a feast for the eye. There is a wonderful mix of gritty urban reality (the grubby gray bomb site chic of NYC) and glitzy new romantic glam slam (the nightclub where everyone hangs out look like sets from a Visage video). His actors are capable - Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs) as Carl, Adrien Brody (Summer of Sam, The Pianist) as Ruby - but they are given so many distinctive mannerisms and character traits that they, at times, seem lost in their own attempts to simultaneously remember them all and act.

Review [Dangerous] The best thing about Dangerous Ground is Ice Cube. Over a series of movies from Boyz 'N the Hood to The Glass Shield, Cube has carefully honed his acting abilities to the point where his off-screen personae no longer eclipses the role he's playing. Elizabeth Hurley, on the other hand, is ineffective. Watching her character -- a stripper who never removes her clothes on-screen -- one can't help but be reminded of the restrictions (one of which is a "no nudity" clause) built into her Estee Lauder contract. Ving Rhames is somewhat entertaining as the drug lord Muki, although the actor is essentially reprising the part of Marsellus Wallace from Pulp Fiction.

Review [Dangerous] Rhames has perfected the South Africa accent and brings a kind of easy charm to his role as a drug lord; he's a sadistic killer, but charming. Hurley takes her generic role and makes it particular. We get a feel for her character--rootless, careless, addicted to cocaine--and her reckless lifestyle. She's ditzy in the right way and doesn't make the mistake of seeming too much at home in the action scenes.

ReviewSource Apollo Movie Guide
Review [Bullet] Bullet is a film that wallows in the hopelessness of the streets. It rejects the American Dream as just that, a dream. And while a downer such as this might have been a welcome change from the monotony of the feel-good flicks that clog the theatre and line the shelves of the video store, Bullet doesn't serve much of a purpose beyond bringing its viewers down.
