Staten Island Movie


  • Why was this movie made???

    seriously??? someone made a movie like this??? none of this is even remotely true to anything…if you see this you deserve blindness.

  • Uhhh

    It was made to piss you off.
    Now move out of moms basement.
    And you did not write any of the books. What do you know is true?

  • why

    @ why was this movie made: don’t make a big deal out of it: it’s a movie!!! How many movies are “true to anything”? There are many bad war movies, but they are still full of adventure, action etc. Don’t like it? Don’t watch it!
    Once you have a degree in history, you will give a different kind of opinion.
    In any case, muslims won’t like this movie anyway, because it is about helping the Jewish population.

    Just seen the movie, the trailor and comments do it no justice, its one of the best and most interesting movie Ive seen for years.

  • Staten Islander

    I seriously can’t believe they made this movie it has nothing to do with Staten Island! It has nothing to do with anything and no one should waste their time watching it. Can’t figure what Ethan Hawke was thinking!

  • Regina

    This movie capture the hearts and ambitions of many who live on SI (my family lives there) It even brings in local issues such as preservation and development. I view it as wonderful redemption story. Ethan Hawke was wonderful as was the deaf mute character. Thumbs up for this. Just saw on TV
