I have loved this film since it came out and I can't believe some of the comments! Did you really expect another Goodfellas from the Brat Pack? Or did you just watch the film so you could confirm your suspicions and have a good moan? The film is very entertaining and well acted. Robert De Niro and Al Pacino may be good actors but the cast of this film is much easier on the eye(!) and I don't think you can fault the acting in this film. Patrick Dempsey and Christian Slater are particularly good in their roles.
Stop being so judgemental and accept the film for what it is - an entertaining action flick loosely based on real events. If you expect a history lesson from the cinema you are bound to be disappointed!
