Movie Info

Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark's history, becoming a man just as rival gangsters begin to rise up and challenge the all-powerful DiMeo crime family's hold over the increasingly race-torn city. Caught up in the changing times is the uncle he idolizes, Dickie Moltisanti, who struggles to manage both his professional and personal responsibilities--and whose influence over his impressionable nephew will help make the teenager into the all-powerful mob boss we'll later come to know: Tony Soprano.

Critic Reviews for The Many Saints of Newark

All Critics (217) | Top Critics (59)

No doubt devotees of the series will have different opinions as to the value of this backstory, but seen in isolation, as an intense and sometimes violent story of a dysfunctional family, the film is richly rewarding in its own right.

Newcomers to the Soprano saga will have no difficulty tuning in. The narrative soon begins to take on the classic lines of authentic tragedy.

The movie was, to borrow an image from the "Pine Barrens" episode, like sucking ketchup packets.

I walked out of the theatre wishing for a limited TV series rather than a movie. Although The Many Saints of Newark offers an alluring glimpse into Tony Soprano's birth under a bad sign, it never shows the blue moon in the mobster's eyes.

All of this is done well enough (although the late '60s and early '70s costuming feels a bit exaggerated, too on the nose) but it's certainly not enough to elevate this film to the level of The Sopranos.

October 7, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

As becomes almost immediately clear, there was no real reason for the movie to have been made, no inspiration for it that was not commercial.
