Most helpful review
Kansas City ShuffleBy AdrianWalsh (226 reviews) from Lancaster , 27 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]The film opens with 2 bookies being shot at the races, after a tip off about a horse. Then we are believed that Sleven finds his wife in bed with another man, he is then bannished from his flat, and so goes to stay at his friend Nicks apartment, but outside he is mugged and gets his nose broken, all in all I would say he is having a bad day.
Things then go from bad to worse, when 2 men turn up looking for Nick and mistaken Sleven for him, they take Sleven to the Crime Boss, where Morgon Freeman tells him he is owed £96K, or alternatively he is to kill the Rabbi's son, the rival crime boss from accross the street, he then arrives back at the flat and 2 more chaps turn up and cart him off to see the Rabbi, he is then told he owes £30k to him, now when all this is going on we see Bruce in the background but until the end we don't really know what part he plays in it.
The film has more twists and turns than 'The Big One' and is a very slick thriller, full of guns shots, and clever editing, the acting is great and the film is very entertaining if not a little souless as you never really get in to the characters mind. All in all I would recommend you watch this on DVD. would give this 3 and a half stars, really.

Well worth watching. Good storyBy Leeann (14 reviews) from Chipping Norton , 25 Nov 2011I wasn't sure if I was going to like this film as I rented it for my son. But I really enjoyed it. A great story which unravelled towards the end. Good acting and kept you guessing all the way through.

enjoyable watch, always thinkingBy a customer , 26 Sep 2011I really enjoyed this film. With a not complicated storyline that often comes with the gangstery type film. This film was very well put together and the star cast was a pleasure.
This "Bad Dog" is Very Very Good.By HowlingWolf (8 reviews) , 29 Aug 2011'The excellent script is its most memorable feature.'
First and foremost, if you are a fan of films like Jackie Brown, Pulp Fiction and other films where the story usually all adds up at the end - then I like to think you'll enjoy this film...
I found myself smiling a number of times through this film, usually in scenes where the script was so tight and well-written that I couldn't help but be impressed - beyond that, the 'payoff' of the film when it all comes together at the end is great.
Ben Kingsley and Morgan Freeman as arch mob-rivals is an absolutely excellent choice as they both are in my mind 'top of the game' classical actors and I couldn't really think of anyone better for these two parts.
I can't think of anything in this film that I found displeasing or wrong - it was by turns funny, dark, clever and poignant and that's why I give it 4.5 stars.
