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.

Format:Blu-ray
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed and not too funny January 30, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Great cast, the reason for getting the movie. It was a little disjointed, a little more violence than expected, and not to funny (all funny scenes were made for the trailer). We purchased the HD streaming format but the quality was poor. Not worth the extra $1 for bad quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars A family that grifts together... June 11, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
ay contain some slight spoilers, but I try to only say no more than what’s in the preview…Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer and their kids are being hidden in France, by the cops (one played by Tommy Lee Jones) from the mafia. Needless to say, a family from Brooklyn are a little shell shocked in France. It’s about how they blend in awkwardly and stay alive being hunted by Mafia. I wouldn’t say it’s hilarious, but it’s pretty funny. Michelle Pfeiffer is the best part of it. I love her thick Brooklyn accent. I just love her in everything. She has always been one of my favorite actresses. It’s a pretty well written script and a good story. You really end up liking and routing this family even though they are all kind of crooks. This movie should’ve been promoted better. It kind of came and went at the box office without being really noticed. Rent this if you get a chance. I think you will enjoy it.

My wife and I enjoyed this movie. It is a typical dysfunctional family plot, with the twist of them being psychotic mob characters, which make it very funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family that sticks together April 11, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It was a pretty good movie. Not as fast paced and gory as other mob movies. I liked how the kids just took care of business like the parents.
