Not "The Godfather" but a Solid Gangster film just the same
This is a solid and complex Gangster film, complete with subplots, plausible plot twists, memorable characters, exciting, original and often shockingly violent sequences, fine cinematography and acting. The one criticism from the other reviews--which, by the way, I could hardly comprehend for the intensity of their negativity--that does ring somewhat true is that I'd have liked some of the characters to be more developed--but after all this is testimony to the film's intriguing and original plot, compelling characters, and the fine(for the most part) portrayals by the excellent cast. This is definitely the kind of rich film that has so much going on that one needs to see it at least twice to appreciate it for the cinematic achievement it is.
