    Re-edit the movie, too many "now and then" scenes make up your mind what the movie it about .
  • Harvey K. was the only great thing

    Bad casting, horrible writing, the lighting was dark on happy moments, then bright on bad moments, Tom hanks as Lucky Lucciano, Tom hanks as the boss of bosses, …

    This slow-paced mob movie gave a more nuanced approach to the genre than most.
  • Slick rehabilitation of a monster

    Harvey Keitel's understated, and in many ways brilliant performance, rescues this film from an otherwise well-deserved cinematic grave. Lansky was a merciless buthcher of the innocent as well as fellow criminals. This this movie manages to render him, in the final analysis, a wise and caring soul who forgives a betrayal, attends shul and weeps for his disabled son. What a farce. Moreover, it's not hard to guess what's up with the beauty in the pool swimming pool, and despite the fact that Lansky was a four-pack-a-day smoker he is seldom shown smoking in the flashbacks.

    not even close. Slow and more of a documentary than a movie. A rental at best but no Godfather(1&2) or Goodfellas.
  • Great Movie
