This was one of those low-budget type Mafia movies. The acting was sub-par, in my opinion, but then again, I don't think the script was the greatest. Overall, it was OK.
The Youngest Godfather
Nicholas Donvito Sr. | Camillus, NY | 05/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I thought the acting was excellent. I saw this first on Showtime a few years back and was very impressed with it. It showed Joe Bonnano the way that I truly belive he was. He was they only mob leader to use violence as a last resort. In no way do I condone using any type of criminal activity, (especially since I'm a retired cop, and Italian), but as far as entertainment goes, this is one of the better movies."
Routine "rags to riches" gangster saga

(3 out of 5 stars)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
Immingrant flees Sicily to seek a better life in America. He tries to be an honest citizen but is lured into the world of the Mafia. He becomes the right-hand to a powerful don, and, subsequently becomes the MAN himself. AT 26, he begins a long, career as a "respected" Mafia chieftan, occasionally running afoul of the law that frequently happens to be in his back pocket.
That's the movie in a nutshell, or perhaps, a TOMMY GUN."
A Great History Lesson on the Mafia

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I enjoyed the family history of Joseph Bonnano, beginning first with his father and eventually leading up to young Joe. There are some nuggets in here that constitute the mentality and behavior of the future family boss. In America, the story helps us to see how a young Italian immigrant almost is forced into this type of a life. There are quite a bit of scenes that seem to be authentic and there is some history as to the developing of the Mafia families. I have always enjoyed not only the wars but also some good mafia "sit downs." I thought it as one of the best!Youngest Godfather"
