Cast: John Cho, Debra Messing, Michelle La, Joseph Lee, Sara Sohn

A taut, effectively paced mystery-thriller with a powerful emotional component.

Although the production is too long and overreaches, it has a bizarre, crazy appeal that’s difficult to shrug off.

Retains the edge-of-the-seat and nihilistic qualities of its predecessor, but there are shifts to the overall tone, which is neither as stark nor as ominous.

Doesn’t hold up quite as well as it did during the late 1980s but it still generates suspense and O’Quinn’s performance has lost none of its power.

Director John Carney infuses the familiar framework of the “coming of age” story with songs and whimsy and a touch of romance.

Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.

A perfect time capsule that gives a real sense of what it was like to breathe the air of a recognizable yet wholly different New York City.

Run Time: 2:09

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Adult Themes)

Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.

An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.
