Storyline

The story of America's most famous mobsters and their rise to power, GANGSTER LAND examines Al Capone's ascension through the eyes of his second in command, "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn. Once an amateur boxer, McGurn is lured into the Italian mafia after the murder of his stepfather. Upon joining, he rises swiftly through the ranks along with friend and eventual boss, Capone. As the Italian mob becomes the most lucrative criminal organization in the country, tensions build with "Bugs" Moran and the Irish mob which ignites a brutal gang war culminating with the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.

Snazzy clothes & lots of fedora's
8 January 2018 | by mwddurkin-623-687189See all my reviews

The fact that the movie promotes Jack McGurn as Capone's second in command tells you all you need to know about the authenticity of this movie. Another movie in which everyone in the world is young and good looking and they all date really pretty women. Oy. Take a look at Capones wife, in reality she was more along the lines of Roseanne. But you got lots of gun play and the costumes are nice so if thats enough for you, you got that.
