Storyline

When the New York City police disrupt a big cocaine deal, the TV news reporters find John Falcone, a local mobster, nearby. They ask some tough questions, and Falcone decides he needs a public relations man to help burnish his image. He hires Todd Barrett, and he keeps Barrett in line with generous helpings of cocaine. Meanwhile, Falcone's unorthodox, violent, and sadistic methods get him cross-wise with Don Ricci, the boss. A mob war may break out. When Todd's wife is endangered, can the flack attack back at the racketeers? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

unwatchable; not bad enough to be good
9 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the constant and miserable soundtrack rounds out this tortuous flick. It gets a 2, not a 1, solely because of the Jake La Motta cameo (which is why I paid the two bucks)... and it just isn't even bad in any interesting way. It's just a bunch of idiots with a 16-mil camera and apparently some semblance of a "budget".

The plot seems to involve an upstart drug-lord/New York mafia dude/pasty white business man (David Henry Keller) who's looking to take over the crack cocaine market, and starts taking out his competitors. At the same time he decides the media is paying too much attention to his illicit goings-on, and hires a flack with bad facial hair (Johnny Stumper) to clean up his image. La Motta is the flick's only redeeming trait as the disapproving "Godfather" of New York.
