Enjoyable movie from the 70's NY gangster movie era
27 March 2015 | by (San Fernando Valley/L.A.) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable movie from the 70's NY gangster movie era. This movie does capture of some essence of life in the boroughs of New York city.

Also, the review form "WarnersBrother from Florida", is by-far, the best and even gives us some actual facts of this story/movie, that is based upon the true story of the Gallo Brothers and particularly "Crazy" Joe Gallo.

The WORST is by "fedor8 from Serbia". "fedor8 from Serbia" writes his review as the movie was made and written by the actors in the film. Come on "fedor8 from Serbia" your opinions is pure asinine. He fails to realize this movie is made over 40 years ago, in the early 70's.
