Rob the Mob [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ray Romano
Tommy Uva (Michael Pitt) from Brooklyn remembers all too well watching his father being beaten and killed by the mob when he was just a boy. It's years later, 1992, when he's full grown, penniless, and out again after doing a stretch in prison, that he decides to take revenge and earn some money at the same time. After all, if he robs the mob, who are they going to complain to? The police? Tommy's girlfriend, Rosie (Nina Arianda), has a job and is reluctant at first, wanting to live a clean life, but when the first load of cash and jewellery land on the kitchen table it seems like a lucrative enough business.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT QUALITY BLU-RAY, 12 Aug 2014

The business becomes so lucrative that the Mexican 'Baja Cartel' run by La Reina Elena (Salma Hayek) gets envious of their product and makes them an offer they unwisely refuse. Peaceful… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars EVEN A WORM WILL TURN, 12 Aug 2014
It's Texas in the 80s. Richard Dane (Michael C. Hall) loads bullets into his gun with shaking hands. His wife (Vinessa Shaw) has awoken him saying she think she's heard something. Their young son sleeps next door. Dane is so edgy when he walks into the living room that his gun goes off and the intruder is dead. Police name the dead man as Frederick Russell (Wyatt Russell) and tell Dane that his father, Ben Russell (Sam Shepard), is due to be released from prison. When Ben Russell turns up in Dane's neighbourhood, Dane naturally feels that the safety of his family is at risk. But nothing is as it seems and things get even more interesting when a friend of Ben's, Jim Bob Luke of the… Read more
