Too much violence and killing in a low budget film
26 May 2001 | by John TalledoSee all my reviews

This movie is about the greed and power of a bunch of gangsters in the mafia from Sicily. They kill and torture people by blowing up cars and buildings in sick and disturbing ways. The characters are really crappy and the direction is really bad. Don't watch it.
