***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** The true story of the big heist in the 1970s at JFK airport is really a fascinating story. It's almost a Shakespearan tragedy about a newly released mobster Jim Burke played sympathetically by DOnald Sutherland who with his pals plan the big heist. Expecting only about half a million dollars, they steal about 8 million dollars in an elaborate well-plotted scheme. Jim Burke is no Castellano or John Gotti, he truly loves his men like family. They are on the bottom of the New York Mafia hierarchy. When they get the money, Jim hides it until everything is ready to release and cut for everybody. But when one of his own men mess up, he had to get killed. But the killing does not stop. The situation only gets worse for him. Soon, all of his own men are killed and he is all alone. Somehow the money does not matter anymore to him. He was placed in a difficult position by New York's mob leaders who threatened his own son's life. Unfortunately, he would die while Jim returns to prison for a minor crime in comparison to the big heist. You almost feel sorry for Jim Burke who did not have the heart to kill his own men to save his son's life. While the big heist was the big thrill in itself, it slowly became a living nightmare for Jimmy Burke.
