Some merit, but will likely not meet your standards
A previous poster in these user comments stated that the events in this movie do not match what happened in real life. I have no doubt that was true, especially considering that the movie was written and directed by schlockmeister Menahem Golan during a severe decline in his career. It's not as bad as some of his other movies - there is some merit. It's never boring despite running almost two hours, the level of acting is okay for the most part, and the budget allowed for ample extras as well as period costumes and vehicles. However, there are definitely areas where the movie is lacking. The Russian locations replicating old time New York City don't look quite right despite their age, and the interiors are poorly lit - maybe in an attempt to hide their equally unconvincing look. The biggest problem the movie has is that we never get in the head of Dutch Schultz. What he's thinking, and why he turned to a life of crime are some questions that are never answered. Not an awful movie, but it's unlikely to be worth your time tracking it down.
