A young gangster is subjected to rigorous academic training(well, by mob standards) in order to infiltrate a police department on behalf of his "syndicate". Once on the inside, he experiences divided loyalties. Slow-moving and pretty unoriginal, with a rather tiresome approach to violence. Like most post-Tarantino gangster flicks, this one strives for philosophical depth, which is achieved largely through having the title character recite a few lines from Socrates and Machiavelli at various points throughout the movie.
That said, I'm personally not a huge fan of the gangster genre, but if you are you might find this worth your while.
