Descripción del producto
Over the summer of 1976, thirty-six bombs were detonated in the heart of Cleveland as a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) and the Italian mafia. After turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken) and joining forces with gangster John Nardi (Vincent D Onofrio), Greene cuts his ties to the Mafia, and begins moving in on their turf. Surviving countless assassination attempts and killing off anyone who goes after him, Danny Greene s infamous invincibility and notorious fearlessness eventually led to the collapse of mafia syndicates across the U.S. and also earned him the status of the man the mob couldn t kill.
Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh and also starring Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and Linda Cardellini, Kill the Irishman is inspired by Rick Porrello s true crime account To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia.
One of the most prolific screenwriters in the action/adventure genre, Jonathan started his career writing episodes of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992) for George Lucas and ABC. He wrote Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995), re-conceived from his original spec script Simon Says. He followed that with Jumanji (1995). His script for the The Saint (1997) was completely re-written by others. After this frustration, he enjoyed a long working friendship with producer Jerry Bruckheimer with whom he collaborated on many projects since 1996. He re-wrote the whole script for The Rock (1996) without credit, which he tried desperately to achieve via WGA arbitration. He did uncredited re-writes on Con Air (1997) and the remake of Gone in Sixty Seconds (2000) and received executive producer credits on both. Armageddon (1998/I), from Jonathan's original idea, was the second time Jonathan had the highest grossing film, worldwide, at the box office. The other was Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995).

When I did, I wasn't disappointed, despite the fact that Kill the Irishman is admittedly not a great film. Some of it is simply due to the apparently small budget of the film, but certain scenes can be a bit hokey, albeit not so much in a poorly made, cringeworthy way so much as in a B action movie sort of way, which is fine on its own. Except that I was expecting this to be more of a B action movie, when in reality, when the film buckles down and takes its surprisingly more serious dramatic turns it does them very well. The final scenes of the film in particular had me near tears, which I was not expecting at all from this film, and are a further testament to the tough yet vulnerable type characters Stevenson plays exemplary, and his performance as Danny Greene here is no exception. As cold blooded as Danny can be in his work, you really get the impression from this he was a good man outside of it, who cared for the people around him and a certain unique, distinctly Irish persona that drew people to him. I found myself rooting for Danny even when I probably shouldn't have been, so as always, Stevenson won me over here.
The rest of the cast does well enough, though Val Kilmer in particular seems to have phoned in his role. But for the quality of Ray Stevensons acting, his character, the storyline, the action packed moments and not least of all the music - an eclectic mix of traditional Irish music and rock and pop music of the time periods - this movie is worth a watch. It's not perfect, but in an era of films bloated by overuse of CGI and forgettable plot and characters, Kill the Irishman has a distinctly old school feel to it that will surely satisfy fans of action and crime films, and even moreso, fans of Ray Stevenson who would like to see him in a good movie for a change.
Mafia (1998), written by Rick Porrello a retired Cleveland Police Detective is the basis for this film that is loosely based on his life. Danny never claimed to be a saint as he himself admittedly wined, dined & danced with the devil himself (which no doubt led to his early demise) the amazing factor is how long he did survive. His only redeeming value was how he looked after his neighbors, the elderly and orphans in his community. As a skilled, dedicated labourer to his 'work' & a vibrant yet brilliant innovative character that Danny Greene was, one has to wonder what he could have accomplished if he only walked the straight & narrow.
"Kill the Irishman", and indie-pic probably made in the single-digit millions, had outstandig acting with Ray Stevenson showing some emmotional range, Christopher Walken as, well, Christopher Walken as an antagonist, Vincent D'Onofrio and an actor who continues to grow, Val Kilmer; along with the usual stable of Italian mafia character actors. I became involved in rooting for this anti-hero and without giving too much away, wanted to reach out a hand to help him on his life's path.
Absolutely engrossing, it is amazing, both films released the same day on DVD, one promoted heavily on TV, the other overlooked even when doing an internet search for "New DVD's this week". 5-10 years from now, one will be a cult-classic, the other will be all but forgotten. LEt me tell you, it won't be the $70,000,000 picture that profited in the long run.
If it happened in Boston it would be up there with the greats, somethingn about the Irish anywhere else lacks a little something, perhaps I am just bias. Nevertheless, seldom is a film worth 4 out of 5 stars and if possible I would give it 4.5/5.
"Kill the Irishman" based on a true story, will not be a waste of your time or money. Slainte'
Even though they were gangsters, Greene and Nardi were surprisingly likeable characters (for killers, that is) mostly because of the charismatic acting of the two leads, Ray Stevenson and Vincent D'Onofrio. The supporting characters were interesting also, including the talents of Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer, Steve Schirripa, Paul Sorvino, Tony Lo Bianco, and Mike Starr.
Interspersed with the actors' scenes were actual clips of film footage from local newscasts of the day, which added authenticity and a touchstone to the amazing story that unfolded in Cleveland some 30-40 years ago.
I highly recommend "Kill the Irishman" as an action-packed, escapist, period piece, featuring superior acting and excellent film editing. It was a thoroughly enjoyable 100+ minutes!
