To bad about the filming locations

For many of us who grew up in Cleveland during the Mafia Wars and remember quite well the bombings and killings, it is too bad that this wasn't filmed at the locations where events occurred in and around Cleveland. It takes away from a great story written by Rick Porello, and a pretty damn good movie. I can't help but make faces and be annoyed by the drastic differences between the "film locations" and the "actual locations".

Broad shouldered crime film based on one extraordinary true story

I'm not too sure just how much of Kill The Irishman is based in actual truth, but if even half of what we see on screen did happen, that is some pretty impressive stuff. The film focuses on the life of Danny Greene (a bulked, sturdy Ray Stevenson), who was an Irish American mobster working out of Cleveland back in the 70's, a guy who seems to have caused quite a stir of chaos amongst organized crime back then. Getting a leg up from the longshoreman's union, Danny quickly rose to power alongside several other key figures including numbers man John Nardi (Vincent D'Onofrio), enforcer Joe Manditski (Val Kilmer) and nasty kingpin Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken). It seems it all went south pretty quick though, because before he knew it he was at odds with Birns, and dodging multiple brash assassination attempts coming at him from all directions. What's remarkable about Danny's story is his sterling resilience: something like over a dozen attempts were made on his life and the darn mick just kept on going, even taunting the underworld between car bomb blasts and raucous shoot outs. Of course, such a life alienates him from his wife (Linda Cardellini) and puts him in perpetual crosshairs, but Stevenson plays it casually cavalier, a gentleman gangster who really cares not for the danger he's wading into, and treads lightly amongst the mess, making me wonder if the real Greene had such an attitude and the sheer luck to back it up. Walken is quiet and dangerous in a somewhat underplayed role, but he is entertaining doing anything, so it's all good. The cast is enormous, and includes the like of Vinnie Jones as a bruiser of an Irish street soldier, Robert Davi in an explosive third act cameo as a lethal specialist brought in to neutralize Danny, and your usual kennel of Italian American character actors like Mike Starr, Bob Gunton, Tony Lo Bianco, Steve Schirippa, Paul Sorvino and others. It's loud, fast paced and ever so slightly tongue in cheek. As a crime drama it works great, could have been slightly longer, but Stevenson keeps things moving briskly with his affable, hyperactive performance and it goes with out saying that the rest of them provide excellent supporting work.

Bulletproof gangster!

This quirky little film is a robust contribution to the popular and well established '**** me the Irish are a bunch of bastards, let's kick the crap out of them' genre.

A young Irishman with a talent for corruption, violence, and gangland killings sets about carving a place for himself in the seedy filth of the Cleveland underworld. When captured by the FBI he sells out his friends and colleagues to become an informant, and exploits this position to advance his criminal career.

Set in the 1970s at the height of the infamous 'Mafia versus pretty much anyone who's not Italian' wars, this action packed film based on real life events has a star studded cast, including Ray Stevenson, Val Kilmer, Christopher Walken, Fionnula Flanagan, and Michael Finn Seamus McDonnell O'Flahahaherty.

I rate Kill the Irishman at 26.64 on the Haglee Scale, which works out as an impressive 8/10 on IMDb.
