"Don't Talk To Me About My Business!!!"
28 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sweet innocent small town gal Melissa Gilbert has met the man of her dreams Joe Penny. He's tall, dark, handsome, a successful attorney with his powerful wealthy Italian family's New York shipping business. What could possible be wrong with him? He's a successful attorney with his powerful wealthy Italian family's New York shipping business!!!

Once Gilbert realizes she's married into the family business it's too late and Uzi toting Cuban hit squads are literally being dropped off via helicopter on the front lawn! Thankfully her new in-laws stock piled enough M-16s to put Charlton Heston to shame in a shootout which makes Stalingrad pale in comparison.

'Blood Vows' certainly isn't 'The Godfather' or 'Goodfellas' but it over delivers what it promises and I really liked the ending.

The establishing shots of NYC are funny as they are desperately trying to conceal the obvious fact this was filmed in Canada not New York.
