Valachi wasn't biting off of The Godfather. To the contrary, they were developed almost in tandem. One just happened to become one of the greatest motion pictures ever created, and a global phenomenon. The other happened to be The Valachi Papers.
As a mob history lesson, The Valachi Papers gets a B minus, as a film it rates a solid C. The characters, especially the Italians, are reduced to thin characterizations. At times, its as though the Super Mario Brothers are recreating scenes from The Godfather or Goodfellas. The accents, and the mustaches, are just that cheesy. Still, Bronson presents an intriguing, albeit romanticized, representation of real-life mob hitman Joseph Valachi.
It's interesting to note that the film's production had to be halted in the U.S. because it became too dangerous to continue. Apparently certain powerful entities didn't want the story told. It was completed in Europe.
Classic Charles Bronson. It doesn't get any better than this. In other words,don't fuck with Chuck.
