CLEVELAND — When it comes to natives of Greater Cleveland who have found enormous success, the Russo Brothers rank right up there with LeBron James and Chef Boyardee. All arguably the very best at what they do.

Since directing their breakthrough film "Welcome to Collinwood" right here in Cleveland in 2002, The Russos have helped to create some of the most memorable and successful entertainment of our time across various genres and platforms. Most notably, they directed a pair of Marvel's "Captain America" films, plus both "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Avengers: Endgame."

Their latest effort, the thriller spy series "Citadel" has just arrived on Amazon Prime. "Citadel" was conceived as an international project, with production already underway for local-language versions in Mexico, India, and Italy.

And while I’m certain all of those other Citadel shows will be terrific, the original U.S. version will always have one thing to help it stand above the rest: The incomparable Stanley Tucci. 

If you’d like to shop local and support two burgeoning, regional filmmakers, the first two episodes of "Citadel" are now streaming on Amazon Prime.
