The review of this Movie prepared by charles

The movie follows Ray Liotta's characters from his childhood spent with the fascination generated by the gangsters' lavishing lifestyle to his choice of becoming a gangster himself and the following rise and fall (arrest, loss of money, power, wife). The movie is also a portrait of a mafioso gang between the 60s' and the 80s'.
