It would've worked better as a series. As a movie it felt rushed and a lot of the characters come off one dimensional because there's not a lot of time to flesh them out. I thought the acting performances were hit and miss. Alessandro Nivola who plays Dickie Moltisanti was great and Ray Liotta was solid but Vera Farmiga didn't quite capture Livia in the way Nancy Marchand did. There's hints of it but I thought it fell short. The guy who plays Silvio Dante was horrible. If I was Steven Van Zandt I would feel offended by that performance. While Michael Gandolfini looks like his father his acting is rather bland. The movie visually looks good as it captures the atmosphere of that time but the story is razor thin. Nothing of any real significance happens until the third act in a movie and even then it comes off anti-climatic because the build was weak. Honestly, we didn't need this movie at all and I hope they don't make anymore.
