Brooklyn Rules Great film nobody saw-damn shame
Coming off of last years nearly perfect The Departed which cast a huge shadow in how good mob movies have to be or how great every actor was compared to this indie flick. I think every actor in this film was very good and engaging, you feel the friendship between the three main characters and Alec Baldwin is always dead on in his rendition of a ruthless mob boss, if you don’t like him i would rent The Cooler with William H Macy which he was nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actor. All in this movie is worth 10 dollars, its got a great cast and story that you may remember from the news of the 1980s Growing up in NY as a kid this movie hits home, hearing about Paul Castellano getting in front of Sparks Steakhouse was one of the most insane things to see on TV. John Gotti was a ruthless killer and he wanted everyone to know, he flaunted it to the point where he killed dozens of people for years. He would walk to the courthouse on charges weekly in his three thousand dollar suit nobody could touch him. This is why this movie is special, it captures that feeling of how it came down to an all out mob war on the streets of NY and how it was growing up in the midst of it-60s and 70s have been done. The 80s is when every move these guys made was front page news. I was lucky enough to catch this in the theater and i must say i was highly entertained. Maybe its from being a big mob movie fan or an entourage fan or just a fan of quality characters and acting, either way its fun to watch three guys from Brooklyn grow up trying to keep their nose clean in those mean Brooklyn streets of the 1980s. I just wish this movie went wide release because it was a film that had a huge cast and setting that it would have scored big with a lot of moviegoers-like the scarface generation who all think they are gangsta!
Scorsese lite: lackluster gangster drama back in the day
BROOKLYN RULES (2007) ** Alec Baldwin, Freddie Prinze, Jr., Scott Caan, Mena Suvari, Jerry Ferrara, Monica Keena. (Dir: Michael Corrente)
Scorsese lite: lackluster gangster drama back in the day
Ever since Martin Scorsese made his bones as a filmmaker with MEAN STREETS and GOODFELLAS there seems to be a flood of rip-offs or as they would like to think ‘homage’ to the master who made made men respectable for the average cinephile who could get there violence graphic and anti-heroes even more complex.
However the latest attempt to score a hit for The Mob is a rather lackluster gangster drama set back in the day: specifically Brooklyn circa 1985.
The focus is on a trio of childhood chums who’ve seen the brutality of the streets but are none-the-wiser: Michael Turner (Prinze,, Mr. Zero Charisma himself), as the narrator of the flashback driven story, who has Ivy League dreams of becoming a lawyer; his hot-headed goomba wannabe thug bud Carmine Mancuso (Caan, continuing his cottage industry of short-fused jerk-offs) and their sweet but dumb buddy Bobby Canzoneri (Ferrera of HBO’s “Entourage” who I can’t stomach at all nor the series come to mention it). The three friends are on aimless existences with Michael trying to maintain the straight and narrow path for a stable, normal life preferably from the concrete jungles of his environs while seeing Carmine becoming further corrupted by the local mobster Caesar Manganaro (Baldwin, the best thing about this otherwise tedious affair), a shifty-eyed yet charismatic capo who has his fingers in many pies and shows his true colors for violence in one memorable sequence involving a competitor in the refuse removal business and a meat slicer in the butcher joint Michael works.
While the script by vet scribe Terence Winter (“The Sopranos”) intersperses real life gangsters from the era into the storyline the lines are a bit forced and predictable for the outcome for the trio’s fates and the characters feel like cardboard facsimiles of other genre films like the aforementioned Scorsese canon.
Director Corrente (who made a decent debut years back with FEDERAL HILL) does the best he can with the familiar material but ultimately can’t infuse the stock material with any real energy (accept for a decent fist-fight in a diner). That can pretty much some up the entire film as a whole.
