Mobsters

Mobsters

About

Presented as Young Guns goes gangster, Mobsters rather spuriously pretends to depict the young lives of name hoodlums, having 'Lucky' Luciano (Slater), Meyer Lansky (Dempsey), Bugsy Siegel (Grieco) and Frank Costello (Mandylor) take on the local aging Dons, Gambon and Quinn. This all adds up to an excuse for the young and sexy cast to run around in neat suits, with slick haircuts and big guns, shouting a lot. There is absolutely nothing else here. Even Young Guns had some knowledge of its genre, and a dumb wit and playfulness.

Cast & Connections

  • Actor: Michael Gambon, Costas Mandylor, Patrick Dempsey, Anthony Quinn, Richard Grieco, Christian Slater
  • Director: Michael Karbelnikoff
  • Writer: Nicholas Kazan, Michael Mahern
  • Producer: Steve Roth
  • Photographer: Lajos Koltai

In a nutshell

Mobsters has none of that; it's just silly, sick and shallow.
