Packing the screen with wiseguy-story regulars - like Vincent Pastore and a limp Tony Darrow, perhaps distracted by his recent legal difficulties - is fruitless when your movie is as pathetically inept as this one.

Cathy Moriarty and other Scorsese alums pop up, but these mean streets feel too derivative to thrill.

Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn's vision of the Mafia comes filtered through a needlessly complex screenplay, as if the creators felt the need to prove they've seen a few Arnaud Desplechin films alongside Goodfellas.

Solid performances can't save the film from its banal, convoluted screenplay that leaves no room for interpretation or subtlety.
