Goofs

When the cop car stops the speeding station wagon from fleeing the airfield, the wagon runs into the passenger side door of the cop car, which is obvious by the way the cop car rocks sideways. But then they are both shown close up, there is enough space between them for the mafia gunman to get out of the passenger door of the cop car and there is no sign of the cop car being hit in that area.

Kids At Play Have More Imagination
26 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not much inside information on the infamous crime syndicate. Just a superficial account of a real life country meeting of the mafia in upstate NY.

Extremely low-budget look that is as uninteresting as it is uninvolved. The hats and the sunglasses are laughable, supposedly this is a sinister look to evoke emotion from the audience and hide the lack of emoting. The girl friends of the hostages scream and hide their heads a lot.

The opening barbershop scene is an example of good work but that was the extent of the hack Directors effort and as such it goes nowhere from there.

The annunciating voice over announcer drops in unexpected at times and demands authoritarian authorship because his diction is impeccable.

The final shootout is so dull that kids at play have more imagination.
