The worst part about being a young gangster is that no one takes your ice pick serious until it's too late.
Luckily, the nextgen in this action movie have brains and bullets.
When a fresh-faced Lucky Luciano (Christian Slater) meets youthful Meyer Lansky (Patrick Dempsey) the two, along with Bugsy Siegel (Richard Grieco) and Frank Costello (Costas Mandylor), make a name for themselves in the bootlegging racket.
Over time, the gangster squad seizes control of NYC from the old bosses and divides it between the five main families.
But can this new crime regime keep from crumbling under its own infighting?
Overly violent and under acted, this loose interpretation of the upper echelon of the underworld's top brass fails to live up to its lofty ambitions.
Incidentally, this film reinforces that the only way to get ahead in this world is to mow the older generation down with Tommy guns.
