Thought this was "Goodfellas" when I first turned it on. De Niro's directorial debut is a complex coming-of-age tale under different terms. The dual father roles of De Niro and Palminteri play well off each other; the men are similar in perspective despite their different lives. The Bronx's racial divide is handled quite well (though the romance angle is tacked on and drug down by excruciatingly-long slo-mo shots), and everyone played their parts quite well. Definitely a must-see genre flick.

Strong performances, good direction. I'm a sucker for gangster dramas and this hits all the right notes with solid characters and a good story. It's sort of a humanizing, neighborhood version of Goodfellas with a dash of morality added to the crime boss. It's not a top-level gangster classic, but it's definitely second-tier and worth a watch for fans of the genre. The heated race relations of the 1960s add to the backdrop, bringing to life a tense environment that transports viewers to the era.

Strongest aspects of this film is how it deals with racial undertones and Palminteri's strong performance. The problem with De Niro directing a gangster movie is that it would always look like something Scorsese had done before him. My main gripe was the relationship between Calogero and Jane. It felt fake, forced, unbelievable and corny. Its a decent addition to the genre though flawed.

A competent film with a strong cast, but everything about it feels too familiar. The story, the setting and the characters are all recycled from older, better films. It just doesn't add up to much and is completely devoid of anything that would otherwise make it stand out among the horde of mafia movies.
