Okay, there's no film made on this subject yet that has topped My Blue Heaven (yeah, don't believe me, just go and rewatch it), but this is a pleasant surprise that I haven't heard too many other people recommend over the past few years. So I am recommending it now.
This could have been a really good movie if the tone and feel had not been so damn uneven. Bouncing from comedy to gleefully sadistic violence and onwards to broad farce it seems that Besson does not know what kind of movie he's making. The cast is pretty solid and the script has a lot of potential but the film never takes off. It simmers and keeps you entertained but never enthralled, Shame...
I enjoyed this mainly because i'm a sucker for the gangster thing, and even more of a sucker for Bob. It was super cheesy but that Goodfellas moment made me smile a lot. I guess the whole movie was a more comedic Goodfellas with kids and a couple of silly explosions. It was fun and I love seeing De Niro play one of his old characters again. Fuck it, 4/5.
