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
- If there is any sympathy left for Gilley and Flanigan, it is long gone after their tactics of dealing with suspects went too far.
- Frank himself at the end takes a woman hostage in a last ditch attempt to escape Bishop.
- 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.
