Storyline

Al Capone's been convicted of tax evasion, but the law states that he can only be confined to a regular jail cell. And from there, he still runs his criminal empire. Michael Rourke, a government agent, who is aware of this, seeks to have him transfered to the newly open maximum security prison, Alcatraz, but nobody believes that this is necessary.

The real and violent confrontation between Michael Rourke and Al Capone
26 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

The picture concerns about the Treasure officer named Elliot Ness (Scott Paulin) and specially Michael Rourke (magnetically played by Keith Carradine) as good guys , battling bad guys , the Chicago's crime lord , the notorious gangster Al Capone (Ray Sharkey : 1952-1993) and henchman Frank Nitti (Alan Rosenberg) . The Agent Rourke with a steely conviction fights to send the crime chief to Atlanta and Alcatraz prison where his influence is useless , however Elliot Ness holds the glory . It's actually based on true events . Thus , Al Capone (born January 17, 1899 Brooklyn and deceased 1947) , Alfonso Caponi , Scarface , for a scar on his countenance and son from Italians immigrants . He's a youth comrade of Lucky Luciano and Johnny Torrio , both of whom are also from Napolitan origin . Torrio accompanied to Capone are going to Chicago but he is called by his uncle Jim Colosimo . He's murdered and Torrio rules over as Chicago's crime boss , but during his violent confrontation to Dion O'Bannion he decided Capone managed the business .

The picture deals with the violent rise , living in Miami , and fall of the roaring 1920s and 30s' Chicago crime chief , being splendidly played by Sharkey who makes a good character study of one of the most colorful mobsters of the history . Sharkey captures the special excitement or mood of paranoia on Capone role . In the film appears a mobster convention in which are the famous gangsters : Dutch Schulz , Lucky Luciano , Bugsy Siegel , Torrio and Capone . This TV picture is plenty of mayhem , strong stuff , drama and amount of gangland violence . Although sometimes takes a back seat to the real life and catches the imagination in the storyline . This fast-paced film is well directed by Michael Pressman .
