Ratings & Reviews

  1. Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    Cheap settings, 4 or 5 max, a below average screenplay without layers, three female characters so detestable that they'll drive you misogynous and an absent director. I know that Richard Fleischer can do a lot better. Already forgotten.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    Une solide interprétation d'Anthony Quinn sur l'éternel thème des mafiosi... www.cinefiches.com

  3. jamshid's rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    A Godfather spin - off, and a very slow moving one. But what makes it a B - Gangster movie worth watching is the tautly managed action sequences, particularly the elaborate raid mounted by Forrest on Quinn`s headquarters and the climatic shooting.

  4. Dmitry Karpyuk's rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    No one kills nobody's mistress in this one, don't believe the synopsis and it's rather tedious and redundant, not the usual Fleischer's lot by far. Italian directors, Lenzi included, did similar revamping of Godfather much better. But Frederic Forrest is quite memorable here and watch for Victor Argo smashing a guy's head with a pipe.

  5. McGowran's rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    Refried godfather....occasional fun watching Quinn

  6. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film The Don Is Dead

    If The Godfather is a quality mob movie ,this is a good pulp movie with plenty of violence but without the quality
