    Al Pacino and Johnny Depp in a gangster film, enough said!

    Leider das 2. Mal wieder ohne UT gesehen, und somit nicht viel vom Nuschelgangsterslang verstanden. Soweit ich das mitbekommen habe war der Film aber sehr routiniert mit gutem Ende, die Schauspieler waren auch schwer in Ordnung und Depps Stand zwischen den Fronten gut herübergebracht.

    A clean, tight, entertaining mafia movie about an undercover cop named Joe Pistone (Depp) who gets sucked so far into the crime underworld that he forgets why he is there in the first place, becoming the fake mafioso Donnie Brasco.

    Pistone is befriended by Lefty (Pacino), an aging Mafia journeyman who is clearly worn down by the life, and by being underappreciated. The two form a strange, special, almost father-son bond.

    This film is impressive in that it shows the…

    Sad that we're at a point where it's a relief to see both Depp and Pacino playing normal human beings in a movie.

    Heavy handed, clichéd Scorsese rip-off. Thing is, I remembered it being OK and was looking forward to watching it :(

    Not the most impressive mafia movie ever made, but probably one of the most intriguing stories. Depp, however, is either miscast or just not strong in this role--his descent into the lifestyle feels very forced. Meanwhile, Al Pacino plays a low level enforcer--a spoke, as he calls himself--and it's obviously not a role Pacino was comfortable with. He was Michael Corleone...seeing him play a goon just doesn't feel right. Or maybe it's because the guy he's answering to is Michael…

    Johnny Depp and Al Pacino give great, nuanced performances. Michael Madsen is an intimidating presence. The relationship between Depp and Pacino's characters is the best part of the film.

    Good movie. Took me a bit to see it, but it was just as good as everyone said.

    While it may not be as stylish and energetic as other mob movies, "Donnie Brasco" still features an engaging story and two terrific lead performances.

    It's nice to see Johnny Deep play a human being again.

    I had high expectations for this Pacino-Depp crime drama, and I'm very glad to say that it didn't disappoint!
    Not as amazing as other films in the genre like "Goodfellas" or "The Godfather." But that doesn't mean this isn't great!

    Both Depp and Pacino gave amazing performances, and their chemistry felt very genuine and…

    Excelente película de Mafiosos italianos. Creo que es de las más subestimadas de este genero, me gusta como hacen que el espectador pierda la perspectiva entre lo bueno y lo malo, hay momentos en los que prefieres que ganen los malos. La pareja que hacen Depp y Pacino es sublime, te hace preguntarte ¿Por qué no han hecho más películas juntos?

    Si todavía no la han visto, se las recomiendo 100%.
