    Cathy Moriarty and other Scorsese alums pop up, but these mean streets feel too derivative to thrill.

    Give director Paul Borghese credit for daring in giving his movie a title that evokes Sergio Leone’s two most famous epics. The trouble with doing that, of course, is that you better be prepared to deliver a movie on the same level.

    As far as derivative crime sagas go, Paul Borghese's film might represent the new gold standard of shameless barrel-scraping.

    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.

    Barely qualifies as late-night cable television fodder.

    Don't know what all the negative fuss is about, this movie was awesome! Okay, the script is a bit like a lot of other films but there are some great acting here and the ending – wow! pow! – I didn't see it coming and it made me feel very much. I liked it a lot, great work and congrats to all who were involved in the production and the writing and also the acting and the lighting and the costumes and the effects and the legal department and the catering, but not the animal wranglers, they were truly dreadful and should have been fired and also killed.
