One of the worst examples of Hollywood's glossy reinvention of historical events, this brat pack version of The Godfather (think Young Tommy Guns) is quite unpleasant in the way it presents violence and crime as glib fashion accessories. It is saved from total failure by a quality cast including Michael Gambon, Anthony Quinn and F. Murray Abraham who act the young cast off the screen.

The premise was good since it involved the young mafioso's: Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, Bugsy Siegel and Frank Costello. A descent cast tries to impress and the soundtrack was not that enthralling. The major failure is the screenplay since it failed to make it interesting. Maybe if it focused on each personality instead of as a whole it could have been more effective. Mobsters could have been one of the better mafia related flicks if it weren't for the poor direction.

Not to bad of a gangster movie.I always wonder why directors always have to change the way things actually happened.Mad Dog Coll was NOT killed in a mobs boss office.He was tommygunned in a telephone booth & If a mob boss was ever actually dropped out a window-I NEVER heard of it.I Wonder how much else of the stuff that happened in this movie was changed around

"Mr. Faranzano, it's the IRS again."

“This is America and everything is money.”

The movie tells the story of Charlie "Lucky" Luciano (Christian Slater) and his three pals Meyer Lansky (Patrick Dempsey), "Bugsy" Siegel (Richard Grieco) and Frank Costello (Costas Mandylor),four young men growing up in the 1920's who start at the bottom and despite their diverse ethnic background, their bond leads them to the top of the underworld heap as they contrive to bring down two aging Dons whose time has come.

The Dons, are played by Anthony Quinn and Michael Gambon who are rivals for the title of "boss of all bosses" in the New York City area. There are some very bloody scenes and lots of gratuitous violence.

I am a big mob fan but this is no Godfather or Goodfellas! Having said that Christian Slater has a charm all of his o...
