Kill the Irishman is a who's who of character actors. It features such names as Christopher Walken, Vincent D'Onofrio, Vinne Jones, Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and stars Ray Steveson. That's not to say that this makes the movie unwatchable, quite the opposite. Having all these well-known actors is what helps the movie achieve what it might not have ha... Read More
