Is It Any Good?
This is a violent and fast-paced Italian action movie. My Name Is Vendetta does a nice job of keeping an engaging story moving while also having characters who are developed enough to be worth rooting for. It's basically a revenge story with Mafioso twists and turns, but it doesn't really break out of the established formula of the lead character getting even with his enemies, from weakest to strongest.
While Alessandro Gassman is just fine as the action hero with the dark past, it's Ginerva Francesconi who really shines as the feisty teenage daughter Sofia whose life is turned upside down by her father's past catching up to him. The best thing about this movie, though, is that they keep it moving. The story and the action work well together, and there isn't a wasted scene in the whole movie.
