The story of the rise and fall of the infamous Chicago gangster Al Capone and the control he exhibited over the city during the prohibition years. Unusually, briefly covering the years ... See full summary »
If you're like me with money on hand, bored and in need of entertainment, you will go to your local (corporate) video store to see what's available and if you're like me thinking that you're slick, you would avoid the new releases and head to the vintage "drama, or thriller/action" isles.
I have found this movie in such an isle and it looked promising with Capone holding a Tommy Gun, along with the grainy transfer for the cover,you'd think you've found a very overlooked gem but this is not the case.
In the beginning of this movie, Capone and his henchmen cut's the throat of messenger boy sent from his enemies (the Irish Mob) and after this, you'd think things will continue along this path but it doesn't.
My favorite parts is a Polish butcher pressing his fingers in a slab of meet to give an example on how to pronounce his name, "Sla-vetski", and a dwarf hit-man played by the same guy who played in Willow.
The funny thing is, since this focuses on three friends from England, all the sudden, I'm noticing other actors with an accent and to escape with the loot, the women, and partying like you got over, is very...disappointing and unrealistic.
