The Family

Besson and his talented cast and crew do their best and the film has its moments but the genre has been exploited with every angle that it's hard to break any new ground. Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star with solid performance that recalls their better work in the mob universe. The supporting cast includes Tommy Lee Jones, Dianna Agron and John D'Leo. 1001 Films' coverage of films on DVD.
