Storyline

Real Gangsters tells the story of the Lo Giacamo family, one of the most successful crime syndicates in New York City. Run by cousins Vincent Lo Giacamo (Nick Mancuso) and Jack Lo Giacamo (Frank D'Angelo) Real Gangsters shows how these two men maintain control of their dangerous extended family and volatile business ventures by very different means. Vincent is the politician, the man who always has a plan to help keep the peace, find common ground, bind blood and commerce and grow the family into a billion dollar empire. Jack is the muscle, the hot head, ruthless and uncompromising he lives in the moment and executes his actions based on how he feels. Unfortunately for these two men, these two philosophies don't always work together. Jack enforces his code of duty and honor with a brutal finality that sometimes destroys Vincent's creative scheming. Jack also finds himself unexpectedly protecting the underdogs in his neighborhood that sometimes creates more trouble for him than it's ... Written by Anonymous

Highly recommend about this film
20 April 2015 | by camillalovingoodSee all my reviews

I watched Real Gangsters yesterday and really liked it. I must add that the reason for me watching this movie was D'Angelo new movie - Big Fat Stone that I have watched the night before...

I liked this movie a lot, it wasn't the typical mob movie but I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the plot and the intensity of the scenes. I loved the chemistry of the entire cast (much like Big Fat Stone) and I loved the music very very much.

I would have liked the film to be longer and I wish it had a different ending but overall I enjoyed it very much.

To sum up - I highly recommend you to watch this film, as far as I know it is available on Rogers on Demand so if you have no plans for tonight you may consider this movie
