As a Hollywood history lesson, The Offer makes a lot of shortcuts. But as an ensemble buddy story, it's consistently charming.

All criticisms – and there are many – aside, the Offer remains watchable to the bloated end.

If The Godfather took a schlocky Mario Puzo novel and elevated it to prestige, The Offer has taken a prestigious movie and lowered it back down to schlock.

Godfather cultists, and we are legion, will find (the series) -- presented by the studio that almost didn’t make the movie -- not just impossible to refuse, but nerve-racking.

Full of embellishments... The truth is dramatic enough.

Repetitive for anyone who’s seen the film, and condescendingly didactic for those who haven’t.
