Description

Dramatisation of the life of Danny Greene, an Irish American gangster who gained immense criminal power in 1970s Cleveland. After a tough childhood as an orphan Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) works hard as a longshoreman and union rep, but his mafia connections finally see him forced out of both roles. Turning fully to a criminal life he begins employment for the loan shark, Shondor (Christopher Walken). Greene, however, is too ruthless and ambitious to take orders from an unpleasant character like Shondor for long. After he, in turn, uses and betrays Shondor and Italian mafia boss John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio), Greene ends up as one of the main players in the 1970s turf struggles which see Cleveland dubbed 'Bomb City'. With Detective Joe Manditski (Val Kilmer) on his trail and his enemies determined to assassinate him, how long can Greene maintain his pre-eminence in the city?

Synopsis
Based on author Rick Porrello's book TO KILL THE IRISHMAN: THE WAR THAT CRIPPLED THE MAFIA, director Jonathan Hensleigh's richly detailed biopic details the rise and fall of notorious Cleveland union rep Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson), who earned notoriety in the mid-'70s for his bold willingness to defy the Italian mob. Raised on the mean streets of Cleveland, Greene's tough reputation eventually lands him a contact with the local mob. Before long, the scrappy local has become a mafia enforcer, but after forming an alliance with notorious gangster John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio) and burning feared loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken), Greene starts to discover that he has the potential to become as powerful as any of his adversaries. Later, Greene develops a reputation as untouchable after surviving numerous assassination attempts, and dealing a devastating blow to organized-crime syndicates across the U.S.

"[T]he cast is tasty, including Vincent D'Onofrio as a friendly Mob guy...[and] Christopher Walken as an underworld power broker..." -- Grade: B
