Sean Penn very good in his role as well as the rest of the cast. Sometimes close to more than needed, ut doesn't detract from the movie as a whole. Nick Nolte better than I expected as Parker. Well worth it.

If you like The Untouchables or vigilante justice then this one is right up your alley.Be aware that although this is based on true facts, Hollywood has taken liberties in it's reenactment of actual events.

The acting was good. The story line was good.. The movie did not need all the violence.
I would rent it and fast forward through the violence.

Sean Penn gives a spectacular performance as a mob boss. This film is based on true events when the mob tried to take over L A in the late 1940's. The acting was excellent throughout the film and the storyline good. Two things to be aware of is a high dead body count and excessive cussing, including both the F and C word. I realize that the language fits the rolls of the stories content; but you should beware of it. I would still say go and see this film if only to see Sean Penn's performance.

Penn was great but the rest of the cast was simply not believable. Not tough guys- soft spoken wimps with guns. Too bad, great story poor execution.
