Michael 'Mike' Turner is handsome, bright, a resourceful law student and perfect gentleman. Mike were perfect hadn't he been born in late 20th century Brooklyn, a New York borough dominated by the mob, in his case Carmine Mancuso, who luckily chooses to protect bright Mike, even against mob ruffian Gino, and his two inseparable buddies. Cocky Carmine Mancuso actually chooses to join the bloody business, sparing only his youth friends. Third mate Bobby Canzoneri, whose equally dumb parents hosted the gang as kids, naively aims no higher then tenure in the US Post. Yet Bobby ends up dead when a mob war erupts.Written by
seriously, this is one of the worst movies I've seen in a while. so bad I felt compelled to post a comment here for the first time. I trusted the above 7+ IMDb rating this movie had. big mistake. from the excessive narration to the utter lack of an original plot line, this movie was just terrible. and the narrator is freddie prinz jr. need I say more? you can't compare this to brooklyn's version of a Bronx Tale, because A Bronx Tale was actually a decent movie. the best thing about it is the brooklyn/manhattan backdrop. second best was scott caan. even alec baldwin was a bit of a disappointment, maybe because we were hoping he could save the film. he couldn't. save your money and netflix this only if you're desperate.
