I was expecting a movie that showed the rise (and fall) of the youngest gangster in America, but I ended up getting a movie with an identity crisis. It didn't know if it wanted to be a crime drama or a family drama. Too many details were skipped or fast forwarded, like Rick's rise to power in the second half of the movie. Then it all comes down crashing so fast, I felt like they ran out of time trying to tell the story.
The acting was average, I didn't see any particular standout performances, and it was hard to feel empathy for any character.
Overall, an okay movie, worth streaming maybe somewhere down the road.
