although I can watch a lot of mafia wannabee crap and like it, this goes too far!
19 June 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Being a huge mafia movie enthusiast, I can't understand people who make utter crap wannabee mob-movies like THIS. It's even worse than watching an 80's Cindy Lauper video! It's nothing but terribly type casted actors who can do nothing but act so bland and utterly bad. Clearly the screenplay is completely uninspired , accompanied by a bad script which in my opinion is filled with empty and mindless dialogs. The movie has a porno movie quality sound, not to mention the lighting, it consists of stolen Mafia cliché's wrapped up in an early 90's urban atmosphere that doesn't do any good no matter how you look at this "thing". The filmmakers are trying to make the viewer believe that he/she is watching a movie about Italian mafia wannabee kids working in the oh so obvious pizza place, who revive crime inc. after the place gets robbed and their uncle gets killed...... An insult to the genre and all the good that has been made prior to this, and a complete waste of time.
