Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""GoodFellas" is just one of the movies that did this all much better before."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"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."
‑ Steve Erickson, Village Voice
"Packing the screen with wiseguy-story regulars - like Vincent Pastore and a limp Tony Darrow, perhaps distracted by his recent legal difficulties - is fruitless when your movie is as pathetically inept as this one."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Solid performances can't save the film from its banal, convoluted screenplay that leaves no room for interpretation or subtlety."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Cathy Moriarty and other Scorsese alums pop up, but these mean streets feel too derivative to thrill."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"As far as derivative crime sagas go, Paul Borghese's film might represent the new gold standard of shameless barrel-scraping."
‑ Drew Hunt, Slant Magazine
