About the Movie
A terrific ensemble cast powers this fast-paced action-adventure based on the true story of the rise of organized crime in America. Mobsters traces the daring exploits of four close friends growing up in the 1920's New York: the charming "Lucky" Luciano (Christian Slater), the savvy Meyer Lansky (Patrick Dempsey), the headstrong "Bugsy" Siegel (Richard Grieco) and the diplomatic Frank Costello (Costas Mandylor). From their humble beginnings, they formed an impenetrable bond that led them to the top of the underworld in this visually stunning film co-starring the sultry Lara Flynn Boyle and Oscar®-winning actors F. Murray Abraham and Anthony Quinn.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: For all its machine-gun hits, Mobsters seems to have run out of energy soon after casting.
Rotten: There isn't a moment when you simply sit back and share in an actor's joy at revealing himself through his role.
Rotten: The seemingly can't-miss premise of teen-heartthrob gangsters gets lost in self-important direction, a shoddy script and muddled storytelling.
Rotten: Mobsters looks like it was made by people who have seen too many gangster films for people who haven't seen any. There isn't a breath of life in the filmmaking.
I love this movie it is one of my favorite mob movies in the world
The first time I watch this I was just amaze if your a mafia type a guy than this for you. A best movie and now I get to watch it on my iPod.
OUTSTANDING FOR ALL REASONS
MOBSTERS is an outstanding and remarkably realistic tale of how a few young brilliant criminal minds combined to create Organized Crime in the USA. The film offers superb casting, an exceptionally well written script, absolutely classic direction, an unobtrusive score, and flawless editing. MOBSTERS is a definite "must see" for Godfather, Goodfellas, Bugsy fans.
