Most of you, especially kids/millennials, will find this boring.

I agree with the comment below by zentropasilaydyingbabel "It's ponderous", but had to view it since it stars Michael Caine. Good effort, but misses the mark.
Kind of strange to have an older Mickey Rooney as a mobster, but I guess it works.

The movie is slow, and the dialogue and plot, is exactly like a paperback pulp novel from the 1960's/early 1970's.
What I found amusing, is all throughout PULP, I kept trying to remember a TV show (either SCTV or SNL) that had a skit of impersonating Caine;
that still did not stop me from falling asleep sometimes.

If I were you, I wouldn't waste a hold on this one. It looks like the kind of film that actors hate being in, and it shows, on screen. It's ponderous, also. It exudes a bad feeling. I didn't like it at all.
