5.0 out of 5 stars POSSIBLY THE BEST SERIES EVER MADE, 3 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boardwalk Empire - Season 1 (HBO) [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
I bought series one because I'd noticed that Martin Scorsese was the executive producer. I could not remember ever seeing anything that Martin Scorsese was involved in that I didn't like, including his music documentaries on Blues musicians and even The Rolling Stones. He is, to me, a cut above the rest. So I took the plunge and, boy, was I not disappointed. This is so superb that I am totally hooked and will have to get all the other series' that have or are being made. I like steve Buscemi's acting as the kingpin of the whole political/criminal empire that he controls. His acting style for a fast thinking,quick witted,sharp,character in a harsh World reminds me of Humphrey Bogart.The notion that all humans have hidden agendas and desires except for innocent children, the naive, and the self deluded is pretty accurate in reality and is so well portrayed in 1920's USA in this fictional production, although I'd wager that it is not far from the truth about those times.
The sets are fantastic and Scorsese does his magic to portray everything so well, like a brilliant artist creating a richly detailed work of art. This really isn't serialised, run of the mill, ham acting with 'pretty boy' heroes and an unbelievable plot. This is premium grade stuff.
