Excellent Low Budget Film
For a Film that is most obviously done on the cheap, this has to be one of the greatest Mob movies of the late 90s, Besides Casino. The Characters are Very believable and the Acting is superbly done. The Storyline is excellent too. Burt Young as the Boss of Bosses is superb and gives you a very believable character. You could make comparisons to true Mob stories in this film too. I.E: Gotti and his suits and the Capo Jonny Boy strikes a strong resemblance to old Johnny Boy himself, god rest his soul.
The only gripe I have with this film is the female actress playing the main character, Tony's Girlfriend. It does put a downer on the film when you have superb actors in superb locations and you have this actress whom I personally dont think has the abilities of the rest of the cast.
Anyways, definitly rent this Movie, it is a definite must for Mob fans and don't be put off with the Low budgetness because this definitly sits nicely alongside Goodfellas, Casino and quite possibly Godfather 2.
