Excellent Cadavers Reviews:

Because it's based on facts, you start to watch this film knowing perfectly well what's going to happen and what the ending will be - nevertheless, it's gripping and deeply involving. The storyline of judge Falcone is faithully recreated - though too shortened for my liking - and does him justice. Chazz Palminteri plays Falcone much better than I expected, and while F. Murray Abraham does not look like the true Tommasso Buscetta, he does a fair portrayal of a "man of honour". The role and part of Toto Riina, while secondary, is worth mentioning too - it's truly frightening!


This film, largely created in Palermo, is a decidedly solid attempt, in a quasi-documentary form, at presenting many of the facts revolving about the courageous efforts of the Sicilian judge, Giovanni Falcone (played by Chazz Palminteri), to staunch the political power of the Mafia in Italy. Several real-life stories should be as dramatic or as meaningful to a nation as Falcone's sacrifice for his country. Director Ricky Tognazzi, son of Ugo, kept this work within a tight and neatly edited framework. The acting was solid throughout, particularly by Palminteri and Anna Galiena. It will probably be of limited interest to those not familiar with the facts upon which it is based, but will reward those who watch it by its well-crafted performances by cast and crew.


"Excellent Cadavers" is an HBO docudrama which says the storyline of Italian character Giovanni Falcone; a Sicilian judge who dared to take on the Mafia in its homeland and did more to rid Sicily of its age old scourge than any another boy since Mussolini. As with most docudramas, this movie leapfrogs through time hitting the historical high-points while trying to maintain continuity and build a dramatic tale. The effect is a better history lesson than dramatic biography and a movie which will enjoy greatest for those with a specific interest in the Sicilian Mafia of the late 20 century. (B-)
