News & Interviews for This Thing of Ours
Critic Reviews for This Thing of Ours
The whole operation loses its tension, allowing the story to drift into amusing but familiar territory.
None of this is overly interesting, thanks to murky plotting and the fact that there's nothing involving about these bad guys.
The movie has no personal touch; it merely assembles a who's who of mob-movie heavyweights (James Caan and Frank Vincent among them) and hopes for the best.
Rings with authenticity and solid acting.
Cliche-ridden and ponderous.
Audience Reviews for This Thing of Ours
Danny Provenzano brings crime dramas down low with This Thing of Ours.
While the concept is fitting for a mob story, in which this film is told, the execution is poor. For 95 minutes of screen time, the plot details lack depth and the characters constantly deliver lines of dialogue, meant to be witty, but come across as cheesy. Ultimately, this picture is as bland as its production value.
The constant cursing is for a mature audience, as is the violence, which is backed by cheap sound and blood effects. Ultimately, there is more than enough profanity, but not enough bloodshed.
There are some familiar faces in the crowd, although the question is why. Frank Vincent is okay. James Caan is an absolute waste. Louis Vanaria, Christian Maelen, and Danny Provenzano take the leads in unsatisfactory fashion.
This Thing of Ours has very little to showcase and is therefore a film to be clipped.
One of the very few films that portrays the living of modern day mafia members (the younger ones though). This is the real thing, something you just have to see to adjust our outdated Godfather or GoodFellas bifocals.
SEE the entire film here:
Using the internet and old school mafia traditions, a crew of young gangsters led by Nicholas "Nicky" Santini attempt to pull off the biggest heist in the history of the mafia.
This Thing of Ours is a crime/drama film released in 2003 starring Frank Vincent,
Danny Provenzano, Edward Lynch, Vincent Pastore and James Caan. The title is a reference to the Italian term Cosa Nostra-"Our Thing"-which refers to the Sicilian or American Mafia.
