The Internal Revenue Service is mentioned twice as having
investigated income tax evasion. Before 1953 the IRS was the "Bureau of Internal Revenue"; it was changed to Internal Revenue Service to emphasize "service" to taxpayers. See more »

Was heavily cut to secure an M rating for its Summer 92 Australian theatrical run. The cuts were later restored for its R rated VHS release. See more »
I couldn't believe that this movie was going to be even somewhat good after looking at the cover of the box. Boy, was I wrong, Mobsters sure did not disappoint me and I think I've seen just about every mafia/mob movie ever made in the last 50 years. I'm not saying this goes up there with Goodfellas and The Godfathers, etc, but it definitely deserves some credit. The acting for the most part is very well-done. There is some good action with a fair amount of bloodshed, great set designs, and a good cast. I'm not sure exactly how historically accurate this movie is, but nevertheless, it pulls through to bring an overall excellent mob flick.
