Maria Grazia Cucinotta,
Al Stanco has lived all of his life in Brooklyn and does some work for the local crime lord, Danny Parente. New to the neighbourhood is Gabriela, a filmmaker shooting a documentary on the real Brooklyn. Al and Gabriela become friendly but the relationship is strained when he discovers her true goal is to expose Parente's criminal activities. When Al sees the evidence Gabriela has uncovered, which implicates Parente in the death of many locals (including Al's own father), he seeks revenge in a dangerous confrontation with his boss.

I was talked into renting this movie the other night at the video store by the clerk and was pleased with the film. It is very much your typical mob film, but good acting all around really helps. Danny Aiello is back playing a scheming mob personality with Tony Danza in an impressive performance as a guy stuck in a bad situation who fights back. The main plotline involving the exotic and beautiful lead actress playing Gabriella and Vincent Spano (of "Alive" and "Indian Summer") is a nice story but towards the end the plot becomes cheesy. The worst actor award goes to Rick Aiello who just gets really annoying about an hour into the film. I can't believe he won an award for it!! But, overall it was an impressive little independent mob film that is better than the latest Mario Puzzo TV mini-series starring Kirstie Alley.
