Historically accurate and dark action thriller

I loved watching this with my girlfriend. Harvey is great and the camera work makes everything look accurate. The director did his research on Lansky’s history as this movie displays the notorious gangster in a scary-cool way. Definitely a must see for anybody looking to see some nazis gunned down too.
