This was a gangster film that didn't work at all for me. All of the characters and scenes felt like recycled parts from other (better) films in the same genre. De Niro always chews the scenery well, but here, his talents seem squandered with a sub-par script and story.

Surprisingly he ended up directing a masterpiece, at least I think so. …
