This is based on the true story of Richard Kuklinski,
aka... The Iceman.
I knew about Kuklinski from a documentary made about
him before this film. The real Kuklinski, was as chilling in
real life, as Michael Shannon portraits him, a cold blooded
killer, and this movie only touches the surface on how many
people he killed (over 100!).
Kuklinski was a hitman for Roy DeMeo and the Gemini crew,
who in turn, were part of the Gambino family. The Gemini Crew
were a homicide machine, and they had a method of disposing
of their victims, that would put any serial killer to shame. Make
no mistake, there is honor amongst thieves here, these men
were psychotic animals, and the most coldblooded of them all
was Richard Kuklinski.
This isn't a Goodfellas cheap rip-off in style and pace, but a solid
story of the very, very ugly side of the American Mafia.
