I wasn't disappointed but it could be better.
6 March 2000 | by Krogh71See all my reviews

This is an interesting story about the man who were known as Capone's right hand but wasn't he more than that? The story skips some parts of his life that could have been explored better if they weren't crammed into a 95 minute TV film. This could have been an excellent movie with a better supporting cast and the directing could also have been polished some. Anthony LaPaglia does an excellent job in this. I think he has many sides to him other than the lawyer in the TV series (he also performs outstandingly in the movie "Phoenix"). I rated this one 6/10 >
