Entertaining!

Enjoyed the film. Took my 18 year old son and 12 year old daughter. Daughter liked it, son - not so much. A lot of shooting, tons of swearing. Acting is good. Go see it!

Graphic but gaudy

Robert De Niro and the cast don't disappoint, but the film as a whole is a strain to the senses. So much so, there is hardly any entertainment value in it at all. The action was quick and left no impact, the comedy was far and few between scenes, the writing was stale and it was as if this movie has been done before; which it has been. Luc Besson gets an A for effort but a D in overall execution.

If you are a fan of French cinema...

It's in English with an American lead cast, but it's a French film, viewing America through French eyes and having fun with it. The treatment of violence, and there is a lot of it, owes a lot Quentin Tarantino. Somehow the mayhem is not cringe-provoking. Think Kill Bill. Dialogue is NY-NJ mobster all the way, and very funny. So... it's not for everyone (just look at the mixed reviews) but I found it witty, extremely well acted by a great cast. It's a good story with wonderfully improbable plot twists. Go see it.

The Family

Loved it. It sort of dragged in the middle and a bit far fetched at the end but the end was very action filled. The family love/value was extraordinary....

Not enought funny

This movie showed all the funny parts in the previews. The violence was a shock considering I thought this was going to be a comedy. Would not recommend at all.
