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.

Worth The 2+ Hour Time!!!!

This film illustrates a story of a father and son over a span of 2 generations. Although it was a long feature, the directors/writers did really well with tying the story line together. The story is about a fathers and sons, as well as their trans-generational connection. I enjoyed this film a lot because Mendes, Gosling and Cooper (main characters) played each role so well! Just hang on until the end and you the film gives you proper closure!! A+!

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.

Real & Haunting

An amazing film with breathtaking scenes. Surprising twists, parallels, and you will leave thinking of it for days. It sticks to your bones. This is not Hollywood, it's Schenectady. Gritty, ugly, and heroless. Not for the frou frous, but so well developed and shot, it's worth the pause.

Expectation was too high

Nothing special about this movie, the relatively high rating on IMDB is just because the ending was somewhat unpredictable. But the story line is too fragmented. You have to follow different roles and learn their stories and in the end you don't know you are on who's side of the story. Not much to be remembered of.
