Good entertainment, good acting, fun ride.

It's basically a shoot-em-up, actiony mafia movie. It's done well, and the acting is exceptional. It seems the greatest flaw is that they tried to make it REALLY AWESOME (an effort that was not subtle,) and therefore makes us aware of the fact that the movie is NOT Really Awesome while we're watching it. But it WAS Really Good. It's got its obvious flaws, and a few cheesy parts that take you out of the movie a little. But it's a good story and has mostly likable characters. Seann Penn did awesomely at being the sadistic, power-hungry boss. A must-see for the villain lovers out there. :]

Listen to the Fans, Ignore the Critics

This was one of the best gangster movies I've ever seen. If I watched movies every day and had to write about them I'm sure my taste and ratings for films would probably change, noticing many of the films nuances, influences of "those that count", interpretations and such. Being that I am a weekend movie goer like most fans, I'm strictly out for the entertainment value and the acting. Sean Penn was a natural mob boss. I liked all of the individual characters and felt they all came across as being very believable; but what do I know, I'm just a fan! The film had a good combination of character development and action, with never a dull moment.

Great movie, one of the best "Gangster" movies I have seen in a while compared to other "GanstA" movies. A story that can be foreseen once the movie has started, but more enjoyable then the any movie this year by far.

Wife and I loved the film. It's a great get out for the night film. Lot's and lot's of action and of course you know which good guy is going to get killed. They paid a lot of attention to period detail in this film. They even made sure the right sounds went with each gun ex(BAR ,Thompson SMG, smeischer smg, shotguns etc.

This movie was very well done. The integrity of the time period was kept very well, the plot was developed, the characters were interesting, and the storyline moved along well. We loved it.
