30's mobsters stop at nothing to keep business running smoothly
4 October 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Crime czar uses contract killers to take out those who would undermine his organization. The unfeeling crime boss, Lemke, who constantly complained about his stomach problems, and his blindly loyal enforcer, Mendy, were frightening in their deadly lust for power. Peter Falk's portrayal of the psychotic Reles was chilling with his murderous, take what you can attitude. This was a gritty look at the New York underworld during the depression. The ending was a tad abrupt, but overall this was a pretty good film.
