Positive Review Rating : 84%

    • Roger Ebert

      The poetic transitions are gone.The movie has been wrenched into apparent chronological order, scenes have been thrown out by the handful, relationships are now inexplicable, and the audience is likely to spend much of its time in complete bewilderment. ( Read More )
    • Jeffrey M. Anderson

      Sergio Leones final movie, in the works for a decade or more, is a true epic, a great, sprawling folly, filled with big and small moments, rage and regret, noise and quiet, pugnaciousness and poetry. ( Read More )
    • David Fear

      Did Leone make a genuine masterpiece or simply the most Proustian gangster movie ever ( Read More )
    • While Leones vision still has a magnificent sweep, the film finally subsides to an emotional core that is sombre, even elegiac, and which centres on a man who is bent and broken by time, and finally left with nothing but an impotent sadness. ( Read More )
    • Gary Arnold

      As it stands, Once Upon a Time in America seems stale and antiquated, the dogged but uninspired realization of a dubious filmmaking dream. ( Read More )
