Surprisingly Good Visuals for Straight-to-Video April 19 2011
By Compay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
While Chicago Overcoat lacks the strong stories of Goodfellas or Casino, it makes up for it with great cinematography.

The movie follows the story of aging Chicago mobster Lou Marazano, an undervalued wiseguy who spends his days handling collections instead of running the show. Played by Frank Vincent, Lou lives a modest life in a simple apartment, caring only about the well-being of his daughter and grandson. To usher in his retirement, Lou dusts off his guns for a final series of contract killings. But the tension mounts as friends become enemies, and a weathered detective closes in on him.

The good news is that Chicago Overcoat was shot surprisingly well. There's quality cinematography, great use of shadows, and an overall noir vibe to the film. This was director Brian Caunter's first feature film, and he does an excellent job with the visuals.

Frank Vincent, better known as New York boss Phil Leotardo from the Sopranos, offers a solid performance as an old-school mafioso. Armand Assante only gets a few minutes of screen time as Lou's imprisoned boss, but puts his all into the brief performance. Vincent is reunited with former Sopranos actress Kathrine Narducci (Charmaine Bucco), who stars as Lou's beautiful former mistress.

There are only two aspects of the film that kept it from showing in theaters. The first is that the story isn't that original or moving. It's not a boring flick at all, but it lacks spark. Too many elements of the movie are what you'd find in Heat, Goodfellas, or a number of other mob flicks.

The other downside is that some of the cast is too weak to keep up with Vincent, Assante and Narducci. Danny Goldring is horribly miscast as the liquored-up and obsessed detective on Lou's heels. Much of the cast hams it up and exaggerates their performance, which unfortunately gives the film a low-budget feel. Vincent himself gives a good performance, but isn't given opportunities to show much range.

DVD Extras include a Q&A with the cast and crew on their definition of a "Chicago Overcoat", and a behind-the-scenes look at one of the movie's more memorable shootout moments. It also includes a variety of deleted scenes, as well as an alternate ending.

This is easily one of the best-shot movies you'll find at Redbox, and it's definitely worth a watch. The visuals are dark and beautiful, and even if the story could be better, it's a worthwhile rent.

a movie where you actually want to root for the bad guy May 1 2011
By 1Life - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
i didn't really think much of it when the movie started, i was thinking it was like a big screen sopranos.. but i got more into the story as it was getting very good... I love Frank Vincent and he is great in every movie i've ever seen him in. Like the other reviewer said, it doesn't have the strength of say "Casino" or "Goodfellas" but it does still hold you. And when I say that this is a movie where you can root for the bad guy, i don't mean Vincent's characters enemies, i mean Frank Vincent's character... Out of all the bad guys in this movie, Frank Vincent plays an aging hitman. I was rooting for him when watching it. I don't want to give anything away in my review. But this is def a must watch, must own movie. I first rented it from Redbox for $1.00, now I want to buy it.

Great movie, you won't be disappointed if you are a fan of Frank Vincent, The Sopranos, or mafia style movies.

Chicago Metro area in all the scenes. Oct. 14 2013
By Ronald E. Borah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A great “guy movie”, all the scenes are from the Chicagoland metro area; therefore, if you grew up in the area good fun.
The story is if the old Chicago/Cicero mob and one man’s life in that world.
This is NOT a Romantic Comedy, you will be pleased to know the last fifteen minutes a moral code is presented to you-enjoy.

Chigago Overcoat Sept. 21 2012
By Benny C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Great movie if you like "Gangster Film", I am from; Chi-town all the places shown were authentic hangouts for the Chicago outfit -"Crews" of the 1960's -1980's. From the Chinatown crew to Cicero. Yeah lil Italy and maybe the west-side was missing, but still a story about a stand up guy, "real old school". Not this new age techno gangster if you want to see how an 0ld school gangster does it with style don't miss out on this movie - or I,ll have to get you a pair of cement over shoes.
