“When their poker game is knocked off by petty thieves, the Mob calls in their best enforcer, Jackie Cogan, to make things right. Under the eye of a mysterious driver, Jackie must track down and punish those responsible for the heist. His assignment is complicated by those he comes up against along the way. He hires Mickey, an old friend to take care of one target but he is an incompetent, drunken hit man. Furthermore the Mob he has been contracted by are bumbling local gangsters and so out of touch with the streets they claim to run.”
Ever heard that gangsters are just people who aren’t smart enough to make money legally? I guess there’s some truth to it!
The film is adapted from George V. Higgins’ novel. In theaters; November 30, 2012.
