* OffOnATechnicality: Why Gilley and Flanigan decide to take the law into their own hands. Odd, since Frank just got out of prison a couple weeks ago, so clearly he's been convicted before.

* BlackAndGrayMorality: Frank is a ruthless drug dealer and cold-blooded murderer who is working towards a noble end and genuinely trying to change. The police are correct when They say its obscene how Frank can get away with murder but are willing to break those same laws to catch him. The victims of Frank's reign are despicable individuals, who engaged in vile activities such as child prostitution and scamming illegal immigrants.

The story concerns Frank White (Walken), a powerful drug lord who is released from prison after serving a lengthy stretch, and reunited with his old gang, led by streetwise goon Jimmy Jump (Fishburne). Frank claims to have reformed and hobnobs with the cream of New York society to prove it, but continues to engage in his criminal pursuits. He has a dream: To unite the whole New York underworld in one multi-racial organization, with himself at the head, and use some of the profits to build hospitals for the poor and the needy. But there are a few roadblocks, like racist Mafia boss Arty Clay (Frank Gio) and greedy Triad gangster Larry Wong (Joey Chin), who will need to be cleared away first.

* CivilianVillain: After his release, Frank makes every effort to rebuild his image, attending swanky plays and ritzy restaurants, hobnobbing with politicians and celebrities, raising money for hospitals and jokingly announcing that his new life goal is to be Mayor. All while making eight-figure heroin deals and killing rival gangsters left and right.

A [[TheNineties 1990]] gangster film, directed by the legendary Creator/AbelFerrara. The film stars Creator/ChristopherWalken, [[Creator/LaurenceFishburne "Larry" Fishburne]] and Victor Argo, and features (in the first major screen roles for each) [[Series/CSIMiami David Caruso]] and [[Film/{{Blade}} Wesley Snipes]]. Though initially panned by critics for its enthusiastic use of violent and sexual images and its "glorification" of criminal activity, the film carved out a niche audience among fans of gangster movies and rap, and is today considered a classic example of 1990s crime cinema.
