no, I agree.
Very slow start. hard to get into the story. At least for me.
When I walked in on the beginning scene I thought it was the series finale of the Jersey Shore.
You have to read the book to really understand what is going on here. The source is a novelistic investigative journalism piece on the Camorra, and is formed from small vignettes and anecdotes strung together with crime statistics and research. The character vignettes were taken out and adapted into this movie, but they work much better if you understand the cultural and political context
