Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

A charmless gangster flick that went straight-to-video in the States, this plays fast and loose with both historical setting and attention to period detail in its vain attempt to sustain interest. Despite naming his characters after "real" gangsters - Lance Henriksen is Dutch Schultz, Billy Drago plays Lucky Luciano, and so on - director/co-writer J Christian Ingvordsen is in fact merely trotting out the clichés of the genre to dress up a substandard action movie, as maverick FBI agent Bone Conn (played by John Christian - yep, it's Ingvordsen again) goes undercover to infiltrate the Mob, with predictable gun-toting, rib-cracking results.
