Was hoping for a lot better. I don’t think anything here adds to the show, half of the performances felt like caricatures of the original actors and the plot is so unfocused. A large part of the movie is spent on the Newark race riots, which is fine but again, adds nothing to the show. Dickie himself who was talked about so highly in the show, is really disappointing on the way his arc goes. A mini-series could’ve been much better to let Chase develop the story.
In the small amount of time he gets, Michael Gandolfini was terrific though. Would make his father proud.
