Not what was promised or wanted.
“THE MANY SAINTS OF NEWARK”.
Prepare to be mostly disappointed sadly.
Some nice nods to the show (inc a fun reconstruction of a story Tony tells Melfi, & a redo of a young Tony memory), younger Sil is great & spot on, especially his walk (& yes…we learn a secret), younger Pussy & Paulie are wasted (& Paulie isn’t much like Paulie), younger Livia is pretty accurate (with shades of Carmela at times, maybe intentional), younger Junior is pretty good (with a wonderful expletive nod to the show).
Ray Liotta is good, but he’s used VERY strangely & a (weirdly forced) surprise about him was totally ruined by the trailer!
Dickie is okay, good at times, but mostly unlikeable & unappealing as a character. And yes, we learn the truth about Dickie’s fate… Now the real disappointments;
There was little point in the 60’s stuff being so long, bar 1 big event, the Race Riots were too long & (that 1 big event aside again) totally pointless (we pandering here?).
Michael Gandolfini is sadly poor. He can’t really act, lacks charisma & his speech is weird & slurred.
There’s very little sign of Tony Soprano in his performance & there’s not even any real arc for the character (there’s a nice Melfi foreshadowing involving a Guidance Councillor though).
Johnny Boy is sidelined & does very little.
Janice is wasted too.
And it all lacks focus, drive & energy. And simply isn’t that entertaining.
The biggest problem though is a massive chunk of the film is spent on Harold, an up & coming Black Gangster who means zero to the audience. We’re here to see the World & characters of “The Sopranos”, this ain’t it.
Why is an entire sequence spent on Black Power beat-poetry? What’s with the final credits scene?
Are BLM a big part of “The Sopranos” audience?
We want “The Sopranos”, this ain’t it.
So overall…A letdown.
Good moments (some nice if brief action/violence too), a few nice backstory reveals, & character moments. But so much wasted time & potential. Most of those backstory moments we were hoping for…just aren’t here.
I sure wish that time had been spent on, you know, things to actually do with “The Sopranos”!
Harold is easily the second lead character.
Find me one fan who heard about this film and was hoping the 2nd lead was a non-Mafia, non-Italian, NON-“SOPRANOS”, Black Gangster character who gets a good 3rd of the running time devoted to his backstory & rise to power (& Black Radical Beat-Poetry!) You’ll find not a single one.
But most won’t have the guts to call foul.
Total waste of time
The synopsis is misleading the plot has very little to do with Tony Soprano. For most of the film Tony is little boy in the back ground. The story focuses on the 67 riots and social justice.
