2.5 out of 10 Must this have been sooooo long!
Brock from Limerick, 09 Mar 2011
Marking this lower simply because it was so damn long! 10 minutes of this film is taken up with a hony 12 year old boy slowly eating a cake.... De Niro's characther is not exactly likeable either, toward the end of this mni marathon, I'd lost any sypathies for him. Anyone into mafia styyle epics will no doubt like this
