Not a very good movie. Three is probably too much. Thanks

Much Better Than Expected
Verified purchase
I have to say this was a pleasant surprise. After that Gotti movie Trovolta did I wasn't expecting much. I didn't know they made a film about this situation. I knew something about it, because I remember the Benihana guy Rocky Aoiki was caught up in some cigarette boat racing smuggling situation, I think it might have been the same indictment. I don't know whether or not Mayer Lansky and his nephew were ever really involved, but I guess they were according to this movie, which I never knew before.

Interesting plot and theme, good action but a sad mark toward the end of John Travolta career.

good show
Verified purchase
it was a good show but I didn't like john travolta not standing up for himself when it came to letting people know where he stood on the drugs and anything else illegal and their was no mention of him actually doing anything illegal that the movie portrayed , he only had 1 meeting that actually mentioned anything specific and that meeting still didn't say anything really . so typical travolta which is good but it was like he was kinda hoping it would all go away w/o him doing his part and then end came to quick due to the moron nephew taking over things w/o waiting to c what was actually gonna happen

Could have been far better with a different lead actor

Typically enjoy Travolta in these types of movies, but sadly it is time for John to take supporting roles. Time has passed him by. The story was a good one - and one that should have translated well into a movie…..but don’t believe these 5 star reviews. It should have been a 5 star, but it just didn’t live up to it.

Better if you know the REAL story
Verified purchase
I understand the criticm of the movie, and the factual errors it within the movie. But I am hot sure this was suppose to be a bio or a factual portrayal of facts, just a movie.
Also, things that are not in the right context makes something real to be fiction or "creative license".
I'm sure the boat makers life is much more than made out in this Mobster movie". There is a documentary, here on Prime that has an interview of the man this movie is based on... It is called "Operation Odessa", which is about the buying of a Soviet Sub. I won't give any spoilers, but it is an interesting story, and true. Also, one of the better movies on Prime.
Just look at it as just a form of entertainment, and you will enjoy this better, also the fore mentioned movie will give people a bit of context. Thanks
