Where else do you film a movie about the Cleveland mob and an Irish warrior? Detroit! This movie is not perfect, but it is absolutely worth the watch. A true story and well told story. Many great performances, and a movie that leaves you understanding the major differences in Irish and Italian organized crime. The Irish don't hire people, the do their own dirty work and do it with their hands and somehow make it a noble profession, although it should be noted that its really never a nobleman's job. Danny Greene was one tough , lucky charm.
The importance of this true story in Italian mob history is huge as one Irishman took down an entire countries organized crime scene and changed the game forever. The
families in every major city were effected and Danny Greene proved that the longtime strength in numbers brought in from Italy could be shaken, and shaken by one man, the Irishman.
