To complement the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Ruben Fleischer’s all-star period crime-thriller, Gangster Squad, Thn have picked our own top team of organised crime figures from the world of cinema; both fictional and factual. The genre is well defined thanks to early Cagney classics, Coppola’s legendary Corleone trilogy and Scorcese’s blood-soaked biopics. We’ve assembled quite an eclectic collection of memorable members, from low-level hoods, to fierce footsoldiers, unpredictable capo’s and of course, one don to rule them all!

One quick rule before we begin: a film or actor can feature no more than twice.

So, let’s take a look and see who sleeps with the fishes and who’s king of the hill in our dream team!

Luca Brasi (The Godfather) 1971

Make him an offer he can’t refuse and this hulking, simple-minded, yet faithful hatchet man will follow orders, even if it costs him his life. »
