Editorial Reviews

Academy Award r Winners Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones star in this dark actioncomedy from executive producer Martin Scorsese and acclaimed director Luc Besson. A Mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the Witness Protection Program after snitching on the mob. Despite Agent Stansfield's (Jones) best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Blake (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer), and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D'Leo), can't help resorting to old habits by handling their problems the 'family' way. Chaos ensues as their former Mafia cronies try to track them down, and scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings.

It was a good move for Robert DeNiro to return to something mobsterish after his turn in the bottom of my yearly movie list, "The Big Wedding". "The Family" is a comedy/crime drama from well-known action director Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional & Taken). Many American movie actors are going abroad to film their action movies these days and for the most part, they’ve all been pretty terrible; for instance, "Live Free or Die Hard", "Taken 2", "From Paris with Love" and "The Cold Light of Day", two of which Luc Besson had a part in. So, does "The Family" fall into that mold?

DeNiro plays Giovanni Manzoni, a mobster in the witness protection program that turned on his cronies and is now a heavily monitored and frequent mover. His family, Maggie, Belle and Warren are products of their father. They have learned a few things about getting what they want and defending themselves. With their new home in Normandy, France, they struggle to hide their nature.

The movie trailer plays into the movies comedy and the description of the movie leads with the word comedy. While I found a lot of the movie pretty funny, I think it is important to not go into the movie expecting to be humored like one of our American version crude comedies. Go into "The Family" not knowing what to expect and you’ll find that it tackles many genres of film and has a good range of comedy, action, drama, and to top it off, some quality suspense.

To be honest, some of Luc Besson’s earlier films are some of my favorite movies I’ve ever seen because those movies had amazing characters and great personality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must watch December 10, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Don't let other reviews dissuade you from watching this film. If you enjoy movies like, Meet the Parents, or Analyze This you'll love this film. De Niro played his classic Mobster role, but with a twist of trying to be a good family man. The role of the wife and kids where a perfect family combination. We loved this movie simply put.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gang Life and Family Life, and a series of responses December 26, 2013
Format:DVD
Though THE FAMILY is listed as a comedy/crime/thriller that category is as misaligned as any in trying to describe this very fast moving superbly acted and directed film from Luc Beeson (The Taken series The Transporter series, The Fifth Element, the Taxi series, Léon: The Professional, La Femme Nikita etc). Adapted from Tonino Benacquista's novel by both Beeson and Michael Caleo this cinematic outing blends American gangsters, a witness protection gangster's family with out of country FBI agents and places the action in Normandy, France and the result is an at times brutal tale while at other times an examination of a family made dysfunctional by the father's past, with a lot of secondary plots that bring increased interest to the plot.

The Manzoni family (father Giovanni - Robert DeNiro, mother Maggie - Michelle Pfeiffer, daughter Belle - Dianna Agron, and son Warren - John D'Leo) is relocated to a sleepy town in Normandy, France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of CIA Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Manzoni and his wife and their children can't help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the "family" way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Each member of this strangely close and devoted family takes punishment of outside harassing victims into their own hands, a sweet love affair ensues with Belle and her math coach, and an innocent clipping made for the school newspaper by Warren leads to the Mafia attempt to destroy the family once and for all. Yes there are funny moments in the smart script, but this is more a drama than a comedy - a film noir. The acting by DeNiro, Pfeiffer, Agron and D'Leo (a real discovery!) is first class. A lot of killing goes on, but the film is so well directed and acted that it is a fine evening's entertainment. Grady Harp, December 13

The Family isn't a fast paced film, in facts it's pretty slow paced for most part and could probably have been edited down from it's current nearly two hours in duration. Or alternatively provided more occasions of the delving out justice to racists, jerks and would be rapists which were very enjoyable viewing. Who hasn't been in a store while travelling (especially in France) where locals thinking you don't understand their language start making derogatory and racist remarks about yourself or your race. Only to grovel like cowards when one of your group tells them off fluently in their own language. Well Michelle Pfeiffer playing the mob mother, goes one step better than this at a supermarket. As does Diana Agron when four boys drive her out of town and expect certain favours to bring her back. In fact Agron surprisingly plays her probably best most meatiest role and furthest away from her Glee cheerleader yet. I wasn't expecting much from her, but she was probably the best character of the whole mob family. John D'Leo also doesn't do a bad job as the son, I have to admit I'd never heard of him before this film. Robert De Niro as the mob father also delves out justice to a plumber who turns up late and tries to rip him off and others throughout the film. That's pretty much what the film is, sort of a fantasy of what you'd like to do to those who do bad things to you but know you can't as in real life there are consequences. Sort of like Michael Dougas' character in Falling Down.

Granted this film isn't believable at all. Even if this family wasn't on the witness protection program, and know these actions would bring unwanted attention, no one could do them in real life and get away with it. But that's what makes Family, fun viewing.
