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>

5 out of 10
21 July 2002 | by (Athens, OH) – See all my reviews

I purchased the DVD of Mob War on Ebay for $2, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. If anyone else is going to watch this movie, know that the acting that you will see is soap opera quality. Other than poor acting across the board, this movie's story line is not that bad. Its more about a image consultant's work for a high profile mobster than anything else. I'd recommend watching the movie if you buy it cheap. I give it a 5 out of 10.
