BOSTON HERALD (Friday May 28th, 1999 pg.S5) *** "Some powerful performances give "Southie" an electric charge, especially by the leading man Donnie Wahlberg" by: James Verniere.

BOSTON GLOBE (Friday May 28th, 1999 pg.D5) ..."the actors bring to their roles the kind of rightness that can't be learned in acting school." "Wahlberg succeeds in making us feel that Danny's internal struggle counts for more than the inevitable tough-guy face offs."..."juicy acting and intense individual and communal commitment that seems to boil up from the streets carry "Southie" past its structural and technical limitations". by: Jay Carr
