How the South Educated the Mafia

by Josh Grey on 8/13/2006

What starts in Chicago, ends in Chicago. The plot is simple. Do not kill the brother of a guy from the South, or the son of a Mafia Don. Revenge is not to be ignored, it is to be cherished. The law is not important to these guys. Trying to antiscipate the next curve will prove fruitless. Kick back and enjoy the twists and turns. These brothers, cousins, and uncles, as well as their foes, will provide the entertainment. Location matters, and it is well provided, be it the lush green mountains of Kentucky, the grime of the projects, playing around in a graveyard, or running into a bus full of snakes. Anything is possible, and more is probable. Laughter is available, with a cousin who just can't seem to remember what his job entails. He is gracious with his pratfalls, even when stuck on the underground train, holding the car keys. A good look at who runs the flop house will produce some mighty fine grins as well. Keep an ear open for the music. A subtle, accurate, and down-right delightful mixture of classical, jazz, blues, hill-billy ,country, and pop, to highlight a few. Patrick Swazye adds his skills as well, while his "brother" sits in a jail cell. Hint, guess who put him there? Get ready to rumble!

Editors Note
Note When a young Kentucky man living in Chicago is murdered by a ruthless Mafia boss, his older brother, a Chicago cop, decides to hunt for the killer. Complicating matters for the cop is the arrival of a third brother, fresh from the hills of rural Appalachia, who also wants to find the murderer, but has less concern for the niceties of the law. Undeterred by the mob's sophisticated and systematic brutality, this Kentucky boy seeks vengeance hillbilly-style -- and he won't rest until he gets it.
Plot Summary
Summary When the gangsters of a Chicago crime "family" murder the brother of a police officer, there's going to be hell to pay. It seems the cop comes from the Appalachian Hills where they believe in backwoods-style retribution.
New York Times "...Appreciably better-than-average....Swayze makes a solid leading man, but the film is stolen by [Neeson]..." 10/21/1989 p.16
