From start to finish, it's a story of friendship between four street-wise males who don't mind using violence to achieve the lives that they want. They trust no one but each other, which is vital to their success as mobsters.
The story of a group of friends in turn of the century New York City, from their early days as street hoods to their rise in the world of organized crime. As their crime empire expands, they have to deal with many problems, including their own differing opinions on how to run their business, the local Godfather, Don Faranzano (Sir Michael Gambon), and the psychotic Mad Dog Coll (Nicholas Sadler).Written by

... Try this again and I will kill your mothers, fuck your sisters, and turn your brothers into eunuchs!
I think you've made your point, Benny. Let's go.
[Then, after Bugsy guns down No-Nose]
... You wanna start a war?
I don't mind.
Well, I do. Sometimes you're so stupid I can't stand it.

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 really enjoyed watching this movie. Everyone says that the characters were too young, but that's how young Lucky and the guys really were. Christian Slater was actually a couple of years older than Lucky at the time the movie was set. The age of the characters adds to the amazing ability of the kids to "succeed" the way that they did. All in all, the movie was a lot of fun. Even if you don't care for the movie itself, you can definitely appreciate the determination of these four guys and the power and strength of their friendship. The movie is fast paced and fun to watch, so it does a great job of keeping you entertained. It doesn't hurt to have four hot guys with power and guns, either.
