| great low budget crime flick!!
obviously not a high budget Hollywood film, but that's part of why it's so good. please excuse the broken 'shift' button on my laptop. the movie is based out of Boston, so being from ma, that was pretty neat. they get geography wrong and mess up names, they say that brockton is by the harbor, and they interchangeably use Somerville and somerset, but who cares? the quality of the filming is up there with Hollywood. they use what i would assume to be no-name local artists for music which is cool. the plot is not the same old thing that Hollywood puts out every day and they tie in some local references. the movie is about a power struggle after big Jim, who is obviously supposed to be whitey, leaves after being tipped off about a federal indictment. they are true to real life in depicting the FBI as criminals of lower class than the organized crime figures themselves. don't get me wrong, it's plenty cheesy at times but it's a low budget film and i really liked it. it's no 'departed' or 'gone baby gone' but it's definitely worth watching, especially if you're from new england or you've followed whitey bulger at all. this probably wouldn't have quite as much appeal to people from the west coast or the Midwest as it does to a new englander.
