4.0 out of 5 stars The rise and fall of an Irishman, 25 Jan 2012
This review is from: Kill The Irishman [DVD] (DVD)
Based on a true story this film follows the career of Danny Greene, an Irishman, in Cleveland in the '70's who set about destroying the Mafia. He begins as a dockworker and rises up to become, by fair means or foul, the president of the Longshoreman Union. However, a favour done for a worthless friend begins the downward path into corruption and murder. It doesn't seem to matter what he does or how high and good his motives are things still plummet into violence and, in supplanting the Mob, he is instrumental in forming the Irish equivalent.

This is an intriguing film, highly entertaining and strangely charming with excellent performances from all involved. The bonus extras actually use historical footage, information and interviews from those still living to paint a not quite so squeaky clean image as the film does.
