Not mobsters/wise guys, but gangsters, like Bonnie & Clyde, The Ma Barker Gang, "Pretty Boy" Floyd, "Babyface" Nelson, that genre. Which movies have the best gunfights and shoot-em-up scenes? I want to see Tommy guns, BARs, 1911s, and shotguns.

he wants gangsters, not mobsters. sounds like he's more interested in prohibition-era rumrunners than the mafia, which came later.

A Bronx Tale is pure genious. Also the first movie DeNiro ever directed.

Hoodlum was a great movie about the depression-era gangsters.

I seem to recall "Last Man Standing" with Bruce Willis to be pretty good.

It has the gun play you require!


Tagline: There are two sides to every war. And John Smith is on both of them. (more)

Plot Outline: A drifting gunslinger-for-hire finds himself in the middle of an ongoing war between the Irish and Italian mafia in a Prohibition era ghost town.

Dillenger. Haven't seen it in years, so I can't remember if it was the original or the remake.
