THE PLOT THUS FAR
After serving several prison sentences, Bobby Baldano is released. Craving a life of crime, but desperate to honor his family, Bobby must decide whether to make his family proud or destroy what generations of Baldanos have built before him. When forced to make a life- altering decision between his two families, he’ll quickly learn that one wrong move could be his last.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn” is pretty cliche. But, it makes the best out of the available C-List talent to try and create an old-fashioned crime yarn. Unfortunately, everything is so recycled that you could almost see the shittier films that it was ripping off. The film is loaded with so many damn flashbacks that I started to think that the same guy who did “Man of Steel” edited this film. It’s a mess, but it’s so interesting. Is interesting the right word? Probably not.
The DVD comes with a director’s commentary, interviews and deleted scenes. The transfer is pretty sharp, even though the footage jumps around a lot. The Dolby 5.1 audio track is sharp enough for what’s available. Still, it works. In the end, I’d recommend a rental.
