A soapy European mongrol,

This review is from: The Sicilian [DVD] (DVD)
I'm a Cimino completist and had vague memories of this being sort-of ok when I watched this on VHS back in 1988. I was wrong, although stunning to look at it's a misjudged, uneven mess of a film. Hamstrung by an awful lead performance from Christopher Lambert, and featuring the usually great Joss Ackland in an awkward Mafioso role, the story is a muddled tale of a supposedly real life Sicilian Robin Hood. It has moments of art-house pretension, soapy melodrama and the odd bit of brutal violence. But the overall effect is a made for TV miniseries that's been compacted into a feature film.
