Don't listen to the nay sayers. For those who actually paid attention during the Sopranos series Dicky was a huge part of Tony's life. Great to see a prequel movie that doesn't follow the norm. I thoroughly enjoyed lots of the flashback scenes in the series being accurately portrayed in the movie. Well done.
If you loved Sopranos don't see this movie it will be a big disappointment
Worst movie ever
Not horrible, but not great. Explained a lot about the Soprano's characters. It wasn't focused on the Soprano's, but it shouldn't have been. After all, the Title literally translates to The "Multi Santis" of Newark. It wasn't the time for the Sopranos to be spot lighted.
This is one of the top worst movies I have ever seen. SAVE YOUR MONEY
This is one you may want to watch more than once. I felt like I was watching an episode of 'The Soprano's' on tv, the way it was filmed. Loved it. What a feeling when I finally got who was who, such as Livia, Tony's mother. She was such a bitch sometimes in the tv show but here we are seeing her when she was a lot younger. Silvio, Pauli Walnuts, Junior, here they are much younger than we have ever seen them and it was great how these actors nailed down the mannerisms and speech of the actors who played those characters in 'The Soprano's'. I hoped the movie would open with the same opening as 'The Soprano's', with the James Gandolfini driving into the city, but it didn't. They waited until the end credits to play the familiar theme song, 'Woke Up This Morning'. It was a good way to end the movie. I will have to get it on DVD when it comes out and add it to my 'The Sopranos' collection.
well done - different than sopranos but a must see for soprano fans
This was not a story about the Sopranos as much as it was a story about Christopher's father....Dicky. The disjointed sequences of Tony, left one waiting, holding onto some hope that a clear storyline would develop...that a continuity between scenes...a logical progression would tie together this movie in the context of one of the best stories, shows ever created. It missed the mark terribly. One of so many examples occurs when Tony begs Dicky for meds for his mother....a budding young psychopath which we rarely see....makes a big deal about this....so disconnected...my guess is that it was a set up for a later comment in a scene with the mother. Let's hope Chase gets it correct next time.
MOVIE WAS GOOD BUT LEFT YOU HANGING IN THE END ! NEEDS A SEQUAL SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT HAPPENED! THIS IS A MUST!!
I discovered The Sopranos on a grey market satellite dish before it was ever available in Canada. I used to record it on VHS off of Direct TV and lend it to my friends who were immediate converts. I guess you could say I was The Sopranos super fan in Canada. I really wanted to like this movie. However, on the way home, my wife and I totally forgot that we saw it. A bad sign.
I wanted more when it ended.
Not the Sopranos like everyone is thinking, but watching James' son act and he looks just like his father. Was amazing to see and watch and the ending was wicked as well. Can't wait for the follow up which you know is gonna happen,
Fun, violent, typical hoodlum story line connected to the name. However, it did surprise me that it was better than I thought it would be.
I was disappointed. Went in expecting to learn more about Tony's life and I guess we did in spurts, but not what was expected. Overall not a good movie, but not a bad one.
Didn't suck as much as I thought it would , but it wasn't that great , and I expected it wouldn't be . So no surprise .
