I thought this movie was rather good. I liked how it jumped back and forth in time. The characters should have been developed better. However, its nice to see something different that the usual garbage Hollywood puts out. Ill admit some of the movie is cheesy but if you can get past that its a movie worth watching. It does not stack up to the Godfather or other such movies as the reviews claim on the cover. But it does give you a taste of such movies. Me, I love crime dramas and though I wish there was more blood spilt in the movie I found it surprisingly good. The main character is the strong point in the movie. He has a character and face that makes you sit there and watch the whole movie. Overall it was enjoyable and entertaining.
