The preppy dressed twins Teresa and Christian Langana arrive from Italy with orders from their mob boss father to take control of the drugs in Montreal knowing they will have to go through Declan and...
A story of family, loyalty, deceit, power, greed, and ultimately revenge. Montreal Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto is a criminal anomaly. Determined to bring peace to the disparate wings of the Montreal crime world of the day, Rizzuto successfully unifies them, serving as a de facto CEO while ensuring a lucrative payday for all. When Rizzuto is suddenly arrested and extradited to Colorado's Supermax Prison for the 1981 murders of three Bonanno crime family members, the powerful empire he built begins to crumble. Rizzuto watches helplessly until his release from prison in October 2012, when a Shakespearean tale of revenge begins to unfold.
The storyline enlightens us to the pervasiveness of organized crime. If you watch it for comparisons of " The Godfather" or "Sopranos" you could be disappointed. However, I was amazed to learn how the USA's northern neighbor was the main source of drug infiltration and who really built a beautiful city like Montreal. While some might see some of the characters as weak or too smooth, how do real gangsters look? The Enron boys? Bernie Madoff? I was entertained and I go to the movies weekly, stream more than the "Flixter" and read.
