Mini Mobsters
13 January 2000 | by CharltonBoySee all my reviews

As much as I love Gangster movies there is something that is not quite right about this film.Im not sure the problem is that the actors are just a little bit too young to pull it off if the film should have been an hour longer as there seems to be too much squeezed into 100 minutes. Having said all that i did enjoy this film. Christian Slater has a charm all of his own and is good as Lucky Luciano. Nice and Violent as well! 6 out of 10
