While the story occasionally feels a touch familiar, A Bronx Tale proves dramatically compelling whenever Bob is trying to teach his son or sharing the screen with Chazz.

It's the moralistic tenor of A Bronx Tale that's ultimately most off-putting.

De Niro's feature directorial debut is not a second-tier Scorsese film. Though telling a familiar coming-of-age story, it finds a new angle in depicting the irrational and subconscious origins of racism.

It paints a fairly accurate and hard-hitting picture of the racial tensions of the times, but it still glamorizes the gangsters with too much love.

De Niro proves to be just as much a force behind the camera as he does in front of it. A superb debut - a gripping movie.

De Niro's first trip behind the camera proves that he's been doing his homework. This is a masterful debut, and a great film altogether.
