Movie Reviews

Movie as good as the book
10/21/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After reading the book, I was very impressed with the movie. Never is the movie like the book....but not in this case. The movie followed the book very accurately. Everything that happens in the book are exactly what happens in the movie. So if you read the book already, you will not be disappointed with the movie, I promise. The movie was well done and I would recommend it to anyone who loves Puzo or not."
An Excellent Movie

"The Last Don is an excellent movie which, despite being a mini-series, is fairly violent. If you are a fan of mafia movies, then you will like this one. Many people don't like it because they compare it to The Godfather and expect it, The Last Don, to be better. You have to keep an open mind while watching it, as it is not the same type of storyline or even the same type of film as The Godfather was. You'll know what I mean when you watch it."
One of mario puzo's finest.

"this is a great mob story,it shows almost every angle and position in a mafia-"family".danny aiello was terrific and jason gedric did very well and should be considered in some future mob movies with most experienced mob actors getting older.i appreciated how it told story of a full decade.(also,the book is well worth reading)R.I.P. MARIO PUZO"
A mafia book that gives "The Godfather" a run for its money!

""The last Don" is a movie mini-series that is on par with "The Godfather". Characters such as Croccifixio DeLena (who is the son of the Clericuzio Families number one hammer Pippi DeLena), and Lia Vazzi (an imported Sicilian hit man) make this series unforgettable. Puzo is a master storyteller who does not dissapoint. He leads you through twists and turns in a maze of enjoyable narrarating in an ending that decides the fate of the Clericuzio family and their retreat into "legitimate society"."
