Movie Reviews

Cheap Sopranos rip off falls way short
jc holman | 10/30/2005
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I like gangster movies and am from Philly so I gave this movie a chance. What a mistake. The creators painstakingly tried to rip off the Sopranos but wound up with a very weak imitation.

It starts with the horrible theme song. It's obviously trying to sound similar to the A3 song that serves as the Sopranos theme, but is chock full of horrible lyrics and sounds like someone threw a Casio keyboard down the stairs and recorded it.

The cast is filled mediocre actors, trying in vain to save a stupid script. One funny thing is that everyone in the film has a different accent, and with the exception of one guy, no one can do a south philly accent.

Sal Mazzotta is trying real hard to be James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, but I'm sorry... he may be a nice guy in real life, but the guy couldn't act scared in a graveyard at midnight. And come on; this guy as a gangster? Maybe as Lurch in the Adams Family.

This movie is also plauged by choppy editing and poor camera work. I mean in a few scenes the camera is actually going in and out of focus while people are talking. Don't they teach that in film school? And usually when two people are talking their heads will be turned to one angle for the wide two person shot, and at completely different angles for close ups, like maybe the close up stuff was done much later.

Save your money. Wish I could get mine back. It's been a long time since I saw a movie so bad I felt angry and ripped off for having seen it."

"I actually liked this film. sure, it had its cheesy moments, but doesnt every b-grade mob movie?

I thought most of the charactors did good. A lot of familiar faces from the italian american actor scene. I Dont know about their "philly" accents, sounded more like new york to me, but im from the philly burbs so what do i know?

Overall, worth buying for any mob movie addict that needs more product.

A Mafia mish mash of a movie...

"This film contains every Mafia/Italian American stereotypical cliche in the book. In an hour and forty minutes you get elements of the "Sopranos", "Goodfellows", and "The Godfather" all rolled into one low budget movie. I was amused at how far the producers were willing to go with this! Hence the two star rating..."
