Editorial Reviews

Brooklyn native Mike Manadoro (Kevin Zegers, Transamerica, Dawn of the Dead) has a dream-but he's got to risk his life to make it come true. To afford tuition at a prestigious Manhattan university, Mike takes a job with the local mob boss (Titus Welliver, Gone Baby Gone, TV's Deadwood). But as his assignments grow more dangerous, he learns the true meaning of loyalty when he gets some help from a very unlikely source. Featuring Vincent D'Onofrio (Law & Order: Criminal Intent) and Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), The Narrows is a gritty, real-life portrait of a young man torn between his traditional Italian-American neighborhood and the elite Manhattan world just across the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vincent D'Onofrio performances November 16, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This man is incredible. I have been a fan for a long time and he transforms himself into any character he chooses. I will never understand why this actor has been so under rewarded for his work. He says he doesn't want the leading role parts, but I think he is a leading man and would be wonderful as a romantic lead. He has only gotten better looking and deeper as an actor and he deserves better. This movie was well done and shows how easily one can be drawn into a frightening situation for a means to an end. The supporting cast was also very convincing without being overdone with the Italian ethnicity side of things. The language was very strong and that is not alway pleasing to the ear, but I enjoyed this movie anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely add this one to your D'Onofrio collection! January 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Got this film because I'm a huge Vincent D'Onofrio fan. The movie stays amazingly true to the book "Heart of the Old Country." All of the actors turn in solid performances and the story has a good twist. Kevin Zegers carries off his part as a young man searching for something more in life. The father-son relationship is well played. D'Onofrio once again brings a third dimension to his role. Good movie. Great Vincent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little story, good BD November 1, 2009
I am a fan of D'Onofrio and was hoping to see something different for Zegers than those last two dark outings in Gardens of the Night and Normal - and was pleasantly surprised by the time the credits rolled.

The story follows our twentysomething (Zegers) as he lives with his crippled dad (D'Onofrio) in Brooklyn while working for a car service run by a small-time mobster. The only significant difference between this and the Heart of the Old Country (The Narrows) would be he has the added aspiration of being a photographer, which in itself sets the style of film making. That being lots of picture work being still-shot into the storyline and multiple lens colorings/scene changes, including black & white, sepia, chroma, yellow and a few others. The line follows his struggles with his dad, being owned by the mob, finding love, finding his art in photography - and staying alive.

The BD quality is excellent at times, mediocre in other sequences, but that lens change and digital camera feel were on purpose so I do not fault it with a lower rating. The opening CGI sequence of shifting from a bullet to a football looked pristine - nice reference point right off. The DTS worked fine but gets used very little to the outer channels. The amount of clarity degradations would normally make me rate this Blu lower, but it all serves a purpose and the majority of sequences show NY in excellent 1080. The supplements are thorough for a character film and include:

* 43 minute interview with the director and writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars different April 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i bought this on the recommedation of other's reviews and i'm glad i did. i was pleasantly surprised. this was not your typical mob movie and i want to thank those people who recommended it. i only knew a couple of actors in this movie which was the father,the main thug and nicky who was killed from the series csi ny. i only knew them by face because they always have small roles. i had kind of pulled away from watching films about the mob because they had become typical and predictable but this one was refreshing. what can i say accept i loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bronx Tale for Brooklyn June 29, 2010
Vincent D'Onofrio delivers again in this very interesting tale about a young Italian American kid who wants to study photography at what is apparently NYU, while working his way through school working for a 'car service' run by the brother of the local gangster boss.

I have never seen Kevin Zegers (playing the lead role of Mike Manadaro) before, but his intensity and delivery is just great. Sophia Bush (who plays Kathy) also delivers a great performance as someone who is getting to know the 'bad boy' attempting to get into photog.

There are a couple of others you have seen besides Vincent D. Titus Welliver (Tony the mob boss) plays a great role. You will remember him as the cloud monster character on Lost before Locke was the bad guy. Also playing the neighborhood hero/tough guy name Nicky "Shades" is Eddie Cahill whom you may have seen as Detective Flack on CSI NY. Here you have some great characters who can help to create the intensity you want in a movie.

For those from the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, you get to see a little neighborhood, and you get to see Mike driving across most of the bridges, through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and driving by the Verrazano Bridge. All pretty cool.

There are definately some rough edges to the movie, that make it not a family view, however, there are some lessons that Mike's dad is trying to get across in the typical Vincent D'Onofrio quite deliberate fashion.

Overall, this is a great movie to watch on a quiet night. If you like mob flicks or interesting crime dramas, this is a movie you need to check out.

5.0 out of 5 stars D'Onofrio is great!
The language was really rough in the beginning, but the story got really good. There was some pretty graphic violence, so it's definitely not for everyone. The acting was good. Read more
