Product Description

Product Description

Sylvester Stallone followed up his massive success in 'Rocky' with this tale of life in New York's Hell's Kitchen set during the late 1940s. Stallone plays Cosmo, the smartest of the three Carboni brothers, and the one who comes up with the idea of trying to make a fortune in the seedy world of wrestling. Cosmo's brother Victor (Lee Canalito) agrees to enter the ring, while elder brother Lenny (Armand Assante) comes aboard as manager, and together the three of them begin to make some real money. But as Victor becomes more and more successful, the brothers come into conflict with underworld bum Stitch Mahon (Kevin Conway).

Written and directed by Stallone I've always enjoyed this little curio. Made with an obvious affection for the time period this is an engaging and often funny movie which hinges on the three brothers at the heart of the tale.

Good performances all round and a theme tune sung by Stallone himself. Call me crazy but I think he signs it well.

In the days following Rocky, Stallone seemed torn between being a serious actor and making movies where he throws people around. With Paradise Alley he came up with what seemed like the perfect compromise - playing the fast-talking promoter-cum-trainer of someone who throws people around in this tale of three brothers trying to get out of Hell's Kitchen in the '40s when one of them shows a talent for wrestling. With Armand Assante and Lee Canalito rounding out the trio, it clearly sees itself as a throwback to the tenement dramas of the 40s where the likes of Cagney or Raft would fast talk their way up the ladder, but for all the money that's evidently been spent (much of it badly) it has none of their pace or strength. It also has at least three things going spectacularly against it: Stallone's atrocious screenplay, his abysmal directing and his witless and hugely unlikeable performance as the aforementioned motormouth, who is at times even more obnoxious than the script intends, making the film harder to take when he's hogging the screen. It would help if he gave himself some good dialogue, but this is the kind of film where no-one gets good dialogue or good scenes for the first hour and no-one's had the guts to tell the star/writer/director that this really needs a rethink.

You can see where it could have worked on paper, but for his first effort behind the camera Stallone couldn't even get the setpiece scenes right. What could have been an exciting rooftop race becomes a dreary slow-motion and freezeframe title sequence devoid of speed, danger or even the feeling that these guys are even on a roof while an arm-wrestling scene emphasises how long the whole thing drags on over physical strength or suspense.

I had seen this film several years ago and wanted to see it again. The cast are superb and even the theme song is great. Well worth buying to see it again!

A very good film. I watched it many years ago and enjoyed it. I decided to buy it to see if it was as good as I originally thought. It is! Recommended.

This an early Stallone movie more of a drama than action film. He plays a more streetwise character than a tough guy. Its okay for what it is but don't buy this if your expecting Rocky or Rambo style action. You may also need to use the subtitles for Stallone's dialouge. Watch out for Terry Funk and other faces wrestling fans!

I once had this film taped from the TV. It had different music and sceenes in some places than is in the re-released versions of today. The original version must have been the un-cut version (just wish I still had it). It has just come out on DVD on region 1 (USA) and hope (pray) it comes out on region 2. This is one of the best films I have ever seen. All the leading actors/actresses play their roles perfectly. The witty punchlines/quotes are memorable. If anyone has a copy of the original they don't want, I would be more than greatful.

Watched this when it first was produced and still enjoyed it very much all these years later. A classic movie!
