📣 Top user review: Watchable but underwhelming drama which reminded me more of Goodfellas than The Sopranos. Several younger versions of characters well remembered from the celebrated tv series get screen time but the mood and tone is markedly different. The story focuses on Tony's uncle, a character too bland to hold our attention, particularly when sharing the scene with the powerful Bernthal or charismatic Liotta. There's some half formed rivalry with an emerging African American criminal group, an extremely poorly judged scene at the seaside and several mob movie cliches but little of the distinctive feel of The Sopranos.

I really enjoyed this movie. I loved the fact that they focused more on the character of dickie moltasanti then young Tony, although in the trailer they advertised it more for Tony (played by the brilliant michael gandolfini) A couple bits I didn't like about the film was how chrissie did the voice over. It makes it quite confusing at times and makes you question the time of when he's speaking in. SPOILERS Another thing was poor writing. Some of the plot points in the movie don't make much sense. An example of this being the reason why junior whacked dickie, or Dickie killing his father and disposing of tje body without showing much emotion. This could be done to outline the cold-heartness of the man however he appears to be more than a frustrated with the effect hes having on Tony. Another plot point which may be overlooked in practicality is that Dickie drowned goomar (his fathers ex-bride) on a public beach in the middle of Broad daylight, and apparently no one noticed. Regardless of thia, the film was very well made. As flawyed as the plot may have been sometimes, it definitely draws your attention and keeps you focused all the way through. Watching all the characters from the show in their youth is brilliant to watch. Another nice touch was Big Pussies dad being played by the man who playes pussy in the show. Leslie Odom. Jr made a stand alone performance in the movie, definitely standing out as one of the best performances. I hope to see him in more Ulcoming movies/ shows, as I believe he has so much potential. Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. I would definitely recommend going to the cinemas to see this while you can, even if you haven't watched The Sopranos.

Even as its storytelling chafes at the edges of its cinematic constraints, The Many Saints of Newark proves The Sopranos' allure is still powerful.

The making of Tony Soprano Michael Gandolfini follows in his father’s footsteps as the young Tony in a prequel that will resonate far more with fans of the TV series.

I've never seen The Sopranos before (I'll get around to it eventually) so I was going into this really blind expecting to not get a single reference. Fortunately you can watch the movie without even knowing this was even a Sopranos story. The marketing of this movie ruined this for me. They advertise a movie about young Tony come upings but it's not that at all. This movie feels like two ideas that was made into a movie. A coming of age story of young Tony and a story of Dickie Moltisanti and his runner Harold McBrayer whose relationship is being questioned. With that being said this movie is entertaining with great performances, costumes, and camera work. With Leslie Odom Jr. Being my favorite out of the new comers. The movie suffers from feeling so messy and uneven at times. With the story of Dickie taking the main stage young Tony story is so sidelined and on a back burner after being advertised so heavily. Even when the actor shows up he isn't really given that much to. I really do think they should of made two separate movies but it is a alright gangster flick that is disposable.

A worthy successor/ prequel to the legendary series it’s based on. James Gandolfini would be proud.

Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family’s hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities—and whose influence over his nephew will help make the impressionable teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we’ll later come to know: Tony Soprano.

Meh. Was literally like watching a dull episode of the original series. It's a pointless film. I thought it was gonna be like goodfellas. Very disappointed. Films like this are why people are hesitant to invest two hours in a film over catching up on their favourite series. Wasn't terrible. But wasn't good either

Glimrende prequel til den legendariske serie. Der bliver forklaret mange ting og man får en dybere forståelse for familien. Samtidig er Michael Gandolfini fantastisk som sin far. En udmærket gangsterfilm der dog ikke kan stå alene uden at man kender serien - for mange ting vil simpelthen gå hen over hovedet på en.

Good thriller for those that love Sopranos. Perhaps missing a bit more action.

Not sure, I'm torn between a six and a seven for this one. Part of me really wanted to like it, but the other part of me felt like I was left with too many questions. Hard to tell the story well in movie form as opposed to a series, so I have to give them some credit for what they accomplished in such a short amount of time.
