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 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+!

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+
