'OLD HABIT'S ARE HARD TO LET GO',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Family [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Under the witness-protection program the 'Manzoni' family have been
re-located to 'Normandy' their names are of course changed, it is now
'Blake' the former mafia-boss 'Giovanni Manzoni' (now 'Fred Blake)
has stitched up his former 'Mafia' family.( He's broken the Mafia code)
'Agent' 'Robert Stansfield' (Tommy Lee Jones) try's to keep the family
in line, but old habit's die hard....which leads to many tongue-in-cheek
if but violent sequences.
The Kids 'Belle' and 'Warren' have to adjust to life in a ''normal'' college,
it doesn't take either long to muscle in on the action however.
'Frank's' wife 'Maggie' (Michell Pfeiffer) also has difficulty in fitting into a
run-of-the mill community, life style just won't be the same.
Of course 'Fred' (Robert De Niro) and his family are on the 'mafia' hit-list,
''The Family'' (Mafia) don't forget and are closing in on the 'Blake's new
surroundings after a 'Normandy' newspaper finds its way across the
'Atlantic' into the hands of the now imprisoned 'Mafia' boss.
'Fred' (Giovanni) has a whole lot more to worry about than the colour of
The 'Blake' family now come face to face with 'MAFIA' hit-men in a life or
Some of the reviews I've read in the National's have been less than
complimentary about the movie, however...
The film does harbour many 'violent' sure to make you smile moments,
maybe not the fastest moving film you'll watch this year, however if like#
myself you like 'Robert De Niro' movies, it's worth a spin.
