Stylish, thrilling true-crime film based on the story of Italian mobster Renato Vallanzasca. Charismatically played by the superb Kim Rossi Stuart, there's validity in the argument that the film glamourises, sometimes even approves of his crimes. But there's real technical skill in front and behind of the camera and as a piece of cinema it's quite something.

Gritty, but not that engaging.

Had the makings of a good Scarface-like crime-drama, but ultimately was disappointing. Story just wasn't that enthralling, or engaging. Is pretty much a join-the-dots blow-by-blow account of a crime lord's life. Little depth to the characters.

Has some good action scenes and is quite gritty, but the movie lacks substance.

Decent performances, however. Kim Rossi Stuart is great in the lead role. Supporting cast are solid too. Moritz Bleibtrau and Paz Vega will be familiar names to many viewers.

Italian movie about infamous master criminal Renato Vallanzasca. A little overly macho with his sex appeal seemingly as exaggerated as his violence. Biography runs a little overly long, especially in the opening half that lays out his crimes and early time in jail. In the end, still a pretty good story.
