Plot: Thomas Reagan (Byrne) an advisor for a crime boss in prohibition era has to play peacemaker between two rival gangs only led by Johnny Casper (Polito) the other by Leo (Finney) who both want control of the city. With a pair of siblings just waiting to take over the town Verna (Harden), Bernie (Turturro) add to the mix to create a story about who will finally take over.

 

Verdict: A crime thriller that has more twists and turns than you could imagine

Story: With all the twists and turns this film will leave you guessing from start to finish. Thomas character seems calm and collective with every move that makes it look like he is in complete control. When it comes to gangster films I am not always the biggest fan but this one kept me interested with its story. (9/10)

 

Actor Review: Gabriel Byrne – Thomas the man with a plan to solve the problems being created with two egos clashing. Great performance in the calm role that controls everything that happens. (9/10)
