YMMV / King of New York

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Frank is making out with his girlfriend on a subway when three would-be muggers try to rob them. Frank wordlessly flashes his gun at the muggers, which make them step back. After a few seconds, Frank pulls out a wad of cash, tosses it to the lead mugger and suggests they come find him at one of his hangouts so he can employ them.
  • Ho Yay: After Flanigan died of mortal gunshot wounds by Jimmy, Gilley kisses him on the mouth and says he loves him.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Frank.
  • Moral Event Horizon
  • Vindicated by History: When first released, the film's reviews ranged from mediocre to unredeemably awful. Today, it is considered one of the classic crime films of The '90s.
