Critic Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn
"GoodFellas" is just one of the movies that did this all much better before.
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.
Audience Reviews for Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn
Rats. I got no use for them. Bobby is released from prison for doing some time he earned and held his word to his crime family; so once out, he returns to his crime family roots. A lot has changed since he went in, and the new recruits aren't as conservative and the new bosses aren't as tough. Bobby struggles to adjust to his new lifestyle and tries to stay true to his brothers from before he went in...but he may discover they have changed as well... "Please don't spank me..." Paul Borghese, director of Four Deadly Reasons, Searching for Bobby D, From Geek to Guido, Sex on the Saddle, and the upcoming Dinner with the Foodfellas, delivers Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn. The storyline for this picture is very interesting and contains some entertaining characters. The script and acting are average and the cast includes William DeMeo, Armand Asssante, Cathy Moriarty, Ice-T, and Wass Stevens. "What are you, a walking tornado?" I recently came across this on Netflix and randomly added it to my queue. This was better than I anticipated. Some of the scenes could have been better, and some of the characters could have been more dynamic, but I enjoyed the main character and thought William DeMeo did a solid job. Overall, this is worth seeing once but I wouldn't add it to my DVD collection. "It was a distraction...a good one though..." Grade: C+
Quite easily one of the top ten worst movies I've seen in my 38 years. And I grew up when they were making all those cheesy horror movies! This beats Open Water as my top "I'd use this to torture people" movie.
