| A Mafia Story from a New Perspective: Grade B+/A-
Godfather of Harlem tells the story of organized crime in Harlem circa 1960's; specifically the history of Bumpy Johnson.

Forrest Whitaker as Johnson is excellent, along with the supporting cast. And the production quality is very good.

The only small criticism I would offer is to include more music from the 1960's on the soundtrack; it would make sense and period music would add texture to the story telling.
