Enough not only to whet the appetite for the TV Series, "The Sopranos," but to provide a moderately satisfying meal in its own right.
With its short running length, this drunk-on-CGI production is less a movie and more the outline of something ambitious.
A series of loosely connected skits, this lacks a coherent narrative and appears to have been targeted almost exclusively at the pre-teen crowd.
There’s a dissonance between the film’s darker subjects and its seeming desire to offer something uplifting at the end, and the mediocre songs are a distraction.
What we have here is a godawful movie that, despite its general badness, nevertheless casts a spell of sorts.
Among the best Tarantino-influenced thrillers to have made it to theaters in the last quarter-century.
"Blue Bayou" channels plenty of anger and passion and the narrative lynchpin is compelling but Chon’s capabilities as a writer don’t match those as a director and an actor.
A lively, crowd-pleasing story with heart to go along with the glitter and glitz.
As a mood piece, the film works well, but as a character study, it’s flawed and as a narrative, it’s erratic.
