Editorial Reviews

The world’s most infamous crime organization had done very well for itself in the Old Country, but did not truly blossom until its nefarious emissaries reached the shores of America. Featuring revealing interviews with victims and perpetrators of mob violence, combined with gripping archival film footage, this collection examines the trajectory of La Cosa Nostra’s (“our thing”) development into our collective problem.

I was fairly disappointed when I got it home.

If your used to the slick production of A&E produced Mafia programs, you'll be extremely dissapointed.

I feel duped because I spend money on this trash.

This is a pretty good expose on the history of the Mafia. I am nowhere near an expert in such things, but this set interested me as I have read the occasional Mafia novel, and this set was just so dang cheap.
The first few DVD's were pretty entertaining and informative, going through the history of how the Mafia came into existance. From Bonnie and Clyde to John Gotti it was pretty good.
After a few DVD's though it started repeating itself. The same Bonnie and Clyde clips, same Gotti stuff too. One of the DVD's as a matter of fact seems to be just a summary of what the other four DVD's went through.
I probably won't watch these again, but I learned a little anyways.
The quality is pretty poor, but I didn't expect much. I knew it was just some type of program copied from an A & E special or something. Plus what do you expect from old news clips anyways.

Looks like some high-school kids made this as a class project. I kept looking at the box to see where it said this was a joke. The first fifteen minutes are some kids with a video camera playing pretend "FBI raid" at their local motel. After that disaster it moves on to a confusing and hard to hear narrative over some crappy old stock footage of "bad guys". After about 10 minutes of the man with marbles in his mouth, I couldn't stand it any more and I shut it off. Perhaps the other four discs are better, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

I have wasted my money on this video set. Please don't waste yours. The production quality is that of a junior high school class project. The sound comes and goes. The topics change abruptly, without sense. The tenth video, yes I watched them all, has no new material in it - it is entirely made up of clips from the previous nine worthless videos. You should pull this piece of trash from your shelves. It is an embarassment.

...but then gets repetitive and boring. These DVDs feel as though they were made by amateurs. The commentary gets old quickly and there isn't much of anything new to be learnt. I never got to the end of the last DVD so I can't tell if it gets better as you near the end.

Some good bits and pieces of information. Nothing you can't learn by just researching on the web or other books. I had to catch myself from falling asleep several times. Repeative as well. Don't waste your money.

Brutal. And I thought Blair Witch Project was the ultimate in nauseum through poor production. There is some decent content in a few of these programs but the production and sound quality are so incredibly bad you'll grow disinterested quickly. During the piece on the Kennedy's involvement with the Mafia, they show the famous clip of the assassination and just as Kennedy is about to get shot, they block out his face (like they do on real life cop shows to protect the identity of the people involved) and insert a re-created scene and then back to more block out footage. Throw in the garbled Jimi Hendrixx music and it just doesn't get any worse. If your used to the slick production of A&E produced Mafia programs, you'll be extremely dissapointed. Don't waste your time. Throw in your worn copy of Goodfellas or the Godfather trilogy and enjoy!

This set is extremly dissapointing. can you believe that tape number ten is just clips from the previous 9 tapes. It was like i had to watch the other 9 pieces of trash all over again. Do yourself a favor and buy the A and E 4 tape set of Las Vegas. It is well worth the price two-fold. I just put this tape set in the sanitation garbage truck.
