A tale of fathers and one act of justice that can change everything, leaving up a legacy of sins, and confusions about what's right and wrong anymore.

A tale of fathers and one act of justice that can change everything, leaving up a legacy of sins, and confusions about what's right and wrong anymore. EXCELLENT storytelling (very unexpected, that I can guarantee you). Pacing is a bit off. 20 mins cut off might have made it worth owning in my collection.

Tooooooo long

I guess this one was originally written to be a mini-series, because it is a multi-generational look at the relationship between fathers and sons. But stuck into a 2 hour + format it is far too long for an average movie and the editing/script really don't do any of the stories justice. The advertising is deceptive. Ray Liotta isn't a co-star - he has maybe 2 or 3 brief scenes. And Ryan Gosling disappears after the first 1/3 of the film, just about the time Bradley Cooper appears. The story takes place over nearly 2 decades, but the people barely age. There is almost nothing worth while in this film.

This movie was terrible all around in spite of the goodlooking leads. The worst acting role of the year was the guy playing Brad Cooper's son. It was pathetic and ruined an already bad movie.

I really enjoyed this film, especially the acting. The story telling was fluid and quick. It is 2 hours and 20 minutes long, but it goes by quickly. It is not as good as Silver Linings Playbook, but yet it is still a pretty good movie. I give it a B+

VERY GOOD

Not a movie for everyone. I liked it alot. First two stories are excellent. The last part, primarily the last twenty minutes did not live up to the rest of the movie which is what prevented me from giving it a must go. If you like movies like Pulp Fiction and Fargo youll probably like it. Its not as good as those movies (it could have been close with a better ending), but its worth seeing. It would be a really good movie to see stoned. If you dont like dark movies its definitely not for you.
