Storyline

Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano was mafiosi. He started out as a soldier, but his talent for murder, including the slayings of his best friends, his wife's brother and his own boss, Paul Castellano, saw him rise to under-boss in the Gambino crime family. However, betrayals within the family saw him break the code of silence and became the highest ranking member of the mob to turn into a rat - 'a rat in a suit,- assisting the government to finally put away the Teflon Don, John Gotti.

The ultimate mob movie
3 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Where do i start.. this is like the Expendables of gangster actors and a true gem. there's not many mob films that i do not own, after seeing Getting Gotti and Gotti this beats them both mainly because of the great cast and Tom Sizemores performance. from Frank Vincent to Frankie Vally this movie has them all. Sopranos, Goodfellas, Casino, Gotti, Godfather, Once upon a time in America yes this epic has them all, this is one of my favourite mob movies with good reason..

It never gets tiresome its strictly gangster all the way, some great dialogue and visual shots. you just know they had lots of fun making this. Tuturro as Sammy Gravano is the best ever, very convincing and and a tough guy who means business. best line in the movie is "the next time you break a rule you go"....Big Paul Costallano
