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

Great Gangster Flick
10 December 2014 | by patbradley435See all my reviews

This is a terrific movie by a brilliantly gifted actor, writer and director, Frank D'Angelo. The acting is superb by all that do their parts. It does have its flaws, but not many. It is enthralling to watch, especially D'Angelo's acting - he's just a huge bad-ass in the extreme, but totally captivating to watch. However, the movie could have been so much better if there had been sharper plotting with twists and turns. There is one scene in the movie that is hugely influenced by Pulp Fiction (and a steal from Tarantino's writing) - you'll know it when you see it. This could have been one of the best gangster movies ever if it had shifted up gears another level. It's no Goodfellas or The Godfather, though it is most definitely worth watching for D'Angelo's acting alone. I'd say he's every bit as good as Joe Pesci in the acting stakes and every bit as psychopathic. Brilliant movie. Go see.
