This is a good film.First one I’ve really watched and thought ‘shit, how’d i miss this one?’.At just under 2 hours long i was expecting some shit godfather type rubbish but this is well paced with no unnecessary filler.Some pretty good acting from James Bond himself , the good Bond not the crap one (you know who you are Roger Moore) and a stellar haircut on Kevin Costner.I noticed on the credits at the beginning that Gorgio Armani did the wardrobe/costume and credit to it.There was a couple of pitfalls in the film, notably the police chiefs poor poor Irish accent and the fact that some people can take 1 bullet to die while others can survive until after lunch next Wednesday.When i typed up this thing i had to double check the date 1987,holy fuck i thought it was a mid nineties film.

Oh yeah , i didn’t get the whole Al Capone thing.Everyone knew he was a crook.The media loved him,dozens of journos were hanging round him laughing at his jokes,and he was rolling in cash yet it took fucking ages to bust him.WTF?Nowadays the c.a.b. would take his shit and put him in jail.End of.
