INSTANTLY ONE OF MY TOP 3 FILMS OF ALL TIME. Wow what an awesome movie. Brilliant directing, brilliant acting, brilliant screenplay, brilliant script......BRILLIANT EVERYTHING. Maybe i'm more biased towards liking this film because of my occupation, but I can't see how anyone could not like this movie. Leonardo DiCaprio's credibility and overall awesomeness happens to go higher and higher after every movie he releases....bring on the nominations for both him and this film!
Two and a half stars, which is an equivalent to 50%.....which equates to a FAILING grade. This movie was a complete let down. I wasted two hours of my life and I am 11 dollars poorer than I will ever be. Giving this movie a 74% (passing) when it was full of "anything goes" type moments is beyond me.
I'm over a decade and a half late, but I finally watched Donnie Brasco. Went in not knowing a clue about who or what the movie was about, but afterwards I was left feeling stupid. Stupid because I didn't watch such a great mobster/suspense film sooner. It's pretty awesome to see Johnny Depp in a role where he is not playing a pirate or a man with scissors attached to his hands lol; if only he could get back to more of this real life acting. I enjoyed the movie and thought it flowed really well.
The franchise just got taken to the NEXT level! Here is an example where the sequel has outdone its predecessor. Long story short, this movie is a major win on all levels and it was really well done.....what's not to like?
