This film is a "must have" for anyone who loves the genre of gangster or mafia type movies! With a stellar cast, writing, and direction that is unbeatable this rather long movie will make for an entertaining night in front of the big screen TV.

A Very Long Short Story or Maybe Just A Good Movie
Kafishna | California, USA | 08/13/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's good.
But I must give credit to Ennio Morricone for his composition. Music played such an important part in every scene, that often I thought I am actually watching the music. Robert De Niro was great throughout. Of course, I have seen him so many times in so many mafia movies, that his role was always as expected. However, the early 20 century NY environment, the run-down industrial neighborhoods and the street urchins' brutal, bloody, yet raw playfulness make the movie more than just a gangster show. It takes us to a different era, where NY is a different country within a country. It brings me back to Ennio Morricone's music. He has been so capable of transmitting emotion through simplest of sound! The alienation in an Opium den, the blatant fatalism of corrupt society and its acceptance of nepotism and lawlessness, the waste of life, greed and lust and nonsense passion and despite all, under all those activities, undeniable commotion of basic humanity. A good show.
I am sure real thugs were not as glamorous as shown on celluloids, but it's a credit to Sergio Leone's artistic skill that he has been able to create a time capsule and a world where we are immersed and feel the time it captures. The vocals in the backdrop carried a ethereal quality, that created that paradox of being this world's yet not of this world, which we often feel about movies that makes us nostalgic for an era that we don't like, but wish we could live through."
