Mobster is the story of two men - Jacob Hadar, West Coast kingpin of the Israeli Mob, and Special Agent Ron Zarger, the man implanted to bring him down. Equipped with the latest surveillance technology, Zarger, known by his undercover name 'Eli,' has used his wits and his guts to slip into Hadar's inner circle. Hadar, brilliant and ferocious, has focused his attention on a long standing feud with the Baja Cartel, and has failed to see the saboteurs in his midst.Written by

This is a low budget effort, nothing like a Hollywood film. It is an update of the Serpico genre, insider-tells-all using some contemporary technology which is easily overdone. There are also elements of Scarface but without the balletic, graphic violence. Not that there's any lack of on-screen violence, but none of it is credible. Charitably, the acting and writing is C- to B-. It is not entirely the fault of the actors. With better direction and camera work, the potential was there.
