Written and directed by one of the Jerky Boys, Brutal is far better than that might herald, but far weaker than it could have been with some loose ends tied up more neatly.

There are some quite good things here---most of the acting, most of the script---but the negatives really drag it down. Specifically the astonishingly bad looping: there's lots of it, and sometimes it's literally high school film project bad. Four guys sitting in a car talking and they all sound two inches from their individual mics? Then the exact same sound quality when they're walking down the street? It just kills the sense of reality the film tries so hard to achieve in other ways.

Still, if you like this genre you'll find stuff to enjoy in Brutal. Some of the standard mob actors are here, at least one Soprano vet (as is now mandated by The Union in all wiseguy flicks), and there's way less Hollywood cheese vibe than many mob movies; this one feels quite NYC real at its best moments. The leads all feel mostly right, and Greene is typically sleaze deeluxe.

But besides the sound issues and scenes that don't move the plot or characters one inch forward, there are more than a few glaring plot holes, like when one major character gets whacked while playing cards with his boys and not one of them pulls a gun to protect him or themselves while the shooter slowly reloads his shotgun. Come on. Plus various other pretty glaring no-way-could-that-ever-happens. That's the problem with going for total real-feel: when you miss, it stands out twice as much.

In short, if you like mob/heist flicks, and nasty people---there's not one character here really worth feeling much for---you'll dig this. But I'd watch Goodfellas and GF 1 and 2 etc again instead if you want the real deal.

I love this movie. It's the most realistic of any organized crime film I have ever seen. It's funny, gritty, and teaches a hard lesson in what revenge really means. I really dig this film!

This was pretty hard to watch, bad dialogue, worse acting and horrible storyline definite pass.

if someone thirst for a gritty mafia flick this is the one; it puts you in the mind of the movie "good fellas" on a much smaller scale. A lot slower, you have to pay attention to the small details to catch the punch line, but its a good movie.

The "plot" was not engaging enough and I just couldn't get to watch more than 30 minutes of this movie. The filming looked like a movie made with a camcorder. The acting was also quite inconsistent. I'm pretty sure that it is done on purpose for artistic reasons. Simply not my cup of tea so I made no further excuses and stopped right there.

So the movie was an OK gangster movie with the stereotypical Italian 'tough' guys. They get in over there head, blah, blah. Not really a bad movie. The action scenes and the like were pretty good; but when the characters got deep and emotional it really plodded and bad acting came out... especially the main character's wife... she was terrible. All the characters got pretty bad during those type of scenes, but when they were loud and obnoxious (as movies like this make us think of Italians) they were pretty good. I think this movie's big problem was that I didn't care what happened to the main characters; I didn't care if they lived or died because I didn't feel connected to the characters or their plight. In the end it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.

I had to come back here to tell others it's so great.

The acting and plot were real and raw, I could not stop after the first minute I was in until the dramatic end.

The boys are each unique and a compelling group with too much mob influence in their homes and lives. The injustices of life got them into a situation they unfortunately could not get out of - at all. Their network wasn't properly developed under the guidance of a mentor. They were young, brave, and vulnerable in a merciless game to which they were not invited.

Of course, I'm cheering the boys on even while they're losing. They extracted a pound of flesh so they were not losers as losers go.

I'll see this a second time.

Good low budget film if u like Italian mob flicks of modern times. Ok,alright the blood looked fake but the plot was really good. Unlike what one viewer said, the end didn't fizzle out & took me off guard. Spoiler alert! I thought it was gonna be a happy ending for someone but… I won't say anymore other than I enjoyed the movie. Oh! And there were a few veteran actors in it which made the storyline believable. One more thing...I'm impressed that the director also wrote the screenplay :)
