The worst mafia movie I've ever seen ....
Sometimes, low budget mafia movies can be a pleasant surprise, 'This Thing Of Ours' springs to mind. I started out with reasonable hopes that 'Street Boss' would be a run of the mill mafia verses FBI story. Its based on true events, when the Boston mafia were toppled by exhaustive FBI pressure. The movie starts out with a familiar face to any mafia movie fan, probably best known as 'Big Pussy' from HBO hit series 'The Sopranos'. He's in the movie for about 15 seconds and it all goes down hill from that point on. The main FBI charchter is such a wooden actor its painful to watch, the soundtrack score is awful, and the editing and direction are a shambles. The whole thing is just plain rubbish. If your looking for low budget or TV movies about the mafia, try 'This Thing Of Ours', 'Gotti', or 'Boss Of Bosses' and leave 'Sreet Boss' alone, i regret having watched this trash.
