This movie wanted to be what 'Bugsy' was, but failed terribly.
12 August 1999 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie wanted to be what 'Bugsy' was, but failed terribly.Even for a low-budget TV movie, it's miserably inept. It's a fictionalized account of Bugsy Siegel's founding of Las Vegas. See the 'Trivia' notes on this film.
