    A terrific ensemble cast powers this fast-paced action-adventure based on the true story of the rise of organized crime in America. Mobsters traces the daring exploits of four close friends growing up in the 1920's New York: the charming "Lucky" Luciano (Christian Slater), the savvy Meyer Lansky (Patrick Dempsey), the headstrong "Bugsy" Siegel (Richard Grieco) and the diplomatic Frank Costello (Costas Mandylor). From their humble beginnings, they formed an impenetrable bond that led them to the top of the underworld in this visually stunning film co-starring the sultry Lara Flynn Boyle and Oscar-winning actors F. Murray Abraham and Anthony Quinn.

    I loved this movie when it first came out OK, so the actings not great at all, and the casting could have been better BUT after whoever finally decided to release this movie on DVD, they gave MINIMUM EFFORT in its creation.

    DO IT PROPERLY, OR DON'T DO IT AT ALL!

    LIST OF PROBLEMS

    1) Several Scenes are missing on the DVD version eg, Richard Greicos' love scene when they go to meet Sam Rothestein. Basically on the UNCUT version on VHS he just takes one of the ladies at the party by the hand and they go off to a room together and he starts to seduce her by moving an ice pick gently all over her body while talking softly to her about how to kill somebody properly, after finishing telling her how to kill a man properly he slides off the top with the ice pick.

    In this DVD version, his love scene is cut back dramatically, basically he takes off one side of her top with the ice pick, kisses her, then takes off the other side. no talking about how to kill a man properly. Whoever decided to cut the footage back, deserves to be shot. It just made the scene SOOO much more tasteless, almost made it look like D grade soft porn.

    Another Scene missing from this is a beautiful scene where Charlie and his Dancer girlfriend are out on a picnic and they get caught in a rain storm

    Another scene is where Charlie runs away from Farenzano at

    Staten Island

    Who knows what else is missing, these were just to name a few.

    2) When it says BONUS on the DVD menu, I actually thought I was getting a BONUS!

    This movie was a thrill to watch. It shows how 4 friends remained just that when there were rough times. It also portrays the rise of infamous Luciano, Lansky, Seigel, and Costello. Great Movie to watch if you like movies that portray the Mafia.

    While this is an entertaining telling of the rise of Lucky Luciano, Myer Lansky, Benny (Bugsy) Siegel, and Frank Costello, it has the flaw of making them seem like rough and tumble fraternity members rather than the murderous monsters they really were. Still, given the material and the approach of the movie, Christian Slater (Lucky), Patrick Dempsey (Lansky), Richard Grieco (Siegel), and Costas Mandylor (Costello) are good in their roles. Two really nicely done performances are Michael Gambon as the vicious boss of all bosses, Don Faranzano and Anthony Quinn as his rival Don Masseria.

    Since this is a movie about Depression / Prohibition era gangsters you would expect some violence, sex, and other immorality and the movie does provide them, but not in as extreme a way as more recent movies. I am not claiming this is a virtue or an excuse, just letting you know what is in this film.

    The story takes us from the four gangsters as kids and seeing their lives in their ethnic neighborhoods and seeing their parents struggle under the heels of the Black Hand, corrupt politicians, and paid off police. Instead of deciding to fight against this and clean up the system, they decide to become a part of it and carve out their own niche on their path to money, power, and the carnal life. The movie ends with their finally achieving the top rung of the mobster career path as still relatively young men.

    This is an ok movie and if you are into this sort of thing you might enjoy this. But I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again.

    A movie with the hottest leading man and a great story line about the history of New York and the rest of the US. Richard Grieco, Christian Slater, Patrick Dempsey and Costas Manylor are great as the infamous gangster who went down in the history of the US.
    This movie captures a true story of the rise of organized crime in America in the 1920's.
    The movie follows four daring men and their rise from rags to riches story. Charming Lucy Luciano, the head strong Meyer Lansky, the ruthless, blood thrisy Busgy Siegel and the diplomatic Frank Costello, organized the all the activities in the America.

    I first of all have to say, THANK GOODNESS FOR WHOEVER HAD THE NERVE TO PUT THIS OUT ON DVD , FINALLY!!!! I've watched this movie at least 53 times,no exaggeration. This is one of the best gangster/mob movies ever made. All four actors are great! From portraying Charlie Luciano to Meyer Lansky to Bennie Siegal. Even the little hitman was believable in this film. My advice is to buy it, and buy a couple more for family and friends. They'll all love it as well. IT'S ABOUT TIME, FOLKS!!!

    Good Mob entertainment with Christian Slater, Richard Grieco and many more. Why those two actors don't get the respect they deserve is still a miracle. Also why this movie wasn't recognized much in the cinemas is a mystery. It's solid good work, like any classic mob movie.

    Format: HD DVD
    I missed, or forgot this movie if I had seen it back when it was originally released (1991), but grabbed the HD DVD and sat down to watch it.

    Other movies have spotlighted some of the characters from this 'based on the stories of...' movie, including Bugsy, etc., but this movie ventures into the origins of some of the bigger figures in organized crime from the early 1900's. It is also, as noted in the comments clipped by Amazon above, an excuse to put 4 hot young actors (at the time the movie was made) into these roles.

    The movie itself it is ok with the story interesting and entertaining, but the experience on HD DVD does not live up to the 'look and sound of perfect' that I would expect. The film is ok, but not great and there are times when the image is disturbed with some noise or dirt in the field of focus. Not horribly distracting, but there to be seen at times.

    Sound levels weren't bad and didn't suffer from problems of getting too loud or too quiet throughout the feature (as some discs definitely frustrate me with).

    Extras are basically non-existent on this release. Some biographical information on the real figures would have been great, some making of of the movie information could have been included, but instead there's nothing.

    If you like the movie, this might not be a bad purchase, but it seems underwhelming to me.
