To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This series is addictive, so sorry that only two were made. However, considering this was based on a real life criminal gang, things were bound to come to an end.. Started to watch Series 1 very dubiously but soon got into it, followed by Series 2 immediately afterwards. The casting and acting is absolutely superb. Great research was obviously done to make sure that hair styles,clothes and cars all matched the decades perfectly. Still trying to work out some of the plot lines, so will definitely be watching it all through again. Must have been hell working in crime prevention in those times! Makes U.K.crime shows look positively tame!
This series is amazing. It is so authentically set in the period of the 70s and 80s (music, cars, they way it is filmed, styles) it is incredible to believe it was made in the 21st century. The production, characters, story, history are fantastic and one fo the best series I have ever seen - and I am a box set addict.
This is the one to get as you can set English subtitles, awesome storyline and characterisation the best tv as good as the Wire. My only criticism is that series 1 is not available with English subtitles like this one. Why?
This is an outstanding series. I would urge anyone who hasn't watched Romanzo Criminale to buy both seasons and it will not be long before you are absorbed. It's unbelievable that such a quality production has gone relatively unnoticed for so long. Buy it, tell your friends.
