Storyline

The story of Santo Bastucci, a local banker with a rare gift for memorizing numbers; he is unwittingly cast into the forefront of an aging wiseguy's bid for power, Manny "The Hand" Mistera. Santo is caught between the loyalty he has for his cagey father-in-law, Benny, his childhood friend, Basta, and his streetwise uncle, Matteo, the pastor of their Brooklyn church.

Are the positive reviews of this well below average film people involved in the production?

Very disappointed in this film. Some great actors from the gangster genre such as David Proval mixed in with complete amateurs who must've bought their way on the film as a crowd sourcing reward, I can think of no other way you would have cast actors not fit to be extras as their principal and supporting cast. The screen play is not clever at all and appears to be amateurish. YET the trailer for the film was pretty good, that's what brought me to the theater. I regret that decision, I would have just assumed stay home and watch a real film such as mean streets. The director did an awful job, nothing was tied in together. There was a scene with a very old man and it made absolutely no sense. Paul Sorvino looks like he ready for assisted living and not playing a wise guy.
