While Al Capone works his way up from top-dog street gang thug captain in Chicago to U.S. crime king, his brother Jimmy Capone chooses the righteous way, actually with father's blessing, leaving Illinois for small town Harmony in Nebraska, where he adopts the alias Richard Hart, marries teacher Kathleen, has offspring and becomes its incorruptible town marshal, with a loyal Indian deputy. When his efficient fight against Al's illegal alcohol trade starts to bite financially, the gang's top lawyer is sent to buy 'Hart' or order his death, but recognizes Jimmy and arranges a fraternal reunion in Chicago. Yet money nor threats can turn Jimmy bad... Written by KGF Vissers

Great TV-movie
26 January 2005 | by (Ballarat, Australia) – See all my reviews

I went and bought an ex-rental, and saw that it was a 'buy one, get one free' deal. Thus, I grabbed this when I saw Eric Roberts name on the cover, but it sat unwatched for maybe 8 months or so, probably because the cover of the Australian video release doesn't make it look overly interesting.

I'm glad I decided to watch on a whim however, as it is well worth taking the time to view. The setting and story is very interesting, and Adrian Pasdar is very good as the 'good' brother (Jimmy) of Al Capone.

Eric Roberts doesn't get much to do as Al for the most part except do his usual menacing routine, but he is fantastic in the final scene.

Certainly worth a rental if you can find a copy of this at your local video store, and they haven't all been given away with other ex-rentals yet.
