True Crime?
15 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The story of one of Detroit's most notorious criminals as told be the agent who investigated him. Vincent Pastore is on screen for about a minute playing a Midwesterner with a heavy Bronx accent--Hollywood short hand for how gangsters are supposed to sound regardless of the setting. "Jimmy Calone" also sounds like a stock character from New York although it takes place in Michigan. There's a half-baked subplot about a woman in love with a criminal and the usual thrown together clichés.

Okay, so not many people would defend the "Street Boss" because of the crimes he was alleged to have committed. I will say this for the man. The movie made it seem like he had a problem with Jewish people. Well I'm here to tell you that I happen to be from Detroit and my Jewish cousin worked in his health club. He was treated very well. When getting a story such as this one you have to consider the source.
