Syndicate turns almost legit, but debates its don's proposal to cease shipping narcotics, and go above board in 1960. In the Roaring 20's, the leader began by mugging a neighbor to get money to bury his father. Instead, his brother followed their father's advice, becoming a public health physician. Their childhood pal is the mob's lawyer, who struggles to mediate, as his brother's health fails, and the Feds close in. Written by David Stevens

So Much Possibiliity, So Little Effort
10 November 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There's a syndicate. They sell drugs. Everything else is legal. Huh! There's a lawyer who works for a guy with one of the worst Italian accents I've ever heard. Everyone sounds like Chico Marx. This guy has a past and can't get out of the syndicate. The guy that founded it wants to go straight. The other guys, especially Jay C. Flipped, want to expand. The story is convoluted and unbelievable. People act in the most ridiculous ways. There is a scene at a funeral that is preposterous. The closing scene is also laughable. Anyone could write this tripe. The acting is so bad. Why don't the other gangsters ever talk.
