Gangster movies

What's the best you've seen so far (aside from the Godfather trilogy)? 'Millers Crossing' is a fireball of a movie. The Coen Bros ('Fargo', 'Barton Fink', 'Big Lebowski', Raising Arizona') were responsible for this one which explains why Steve Buscemi, John Turturro and Frances McDormand were in the movie. 'Goodfellas' and 'The Untouchables' are also two of the best I've seen.


  • Casino was quite good also... Have you seen Mafia ? Yung gangster movie spoof, funny funny almost didn't watch it because the reviews were bad... I always like Joe Pesci's gangster performances... "funny ??? funny how ???..."
  • JUNX: The Last Don yun... based on the novel by Mario Puzo... basahin mo yung Novel a lot better than the movie...
  • The Rock likes "Goodfellas", "Casino", and the gangster movie parody, "Analyze This". That movie took every comedic moment possible from gangster movies and turned it upside down. Any Robert de Niro movie with him in a suit and speaking like he's from the Bronx or Sicily will put The Rock in a cinema. Al Pacino and Johnny Depp's "Donnie Brasco" was also very good.
  • My list includes Goodfellas, Casino and The Untouchables... I also like the HBO movie entitled "The Don" (am i correct?), it has a very good storyline....
  • I have to say that the best gangster movie for me is RESERVOIR DOGS. I believe it was the only movie i have seen with an all male cast....directed by Quentin Tarantino who also stars in the film, Tim Roth and a few others...
  • Hmmm...I was thinking before my post if 'Reservoir Dogs' is a gangster movie but since you mentioned it, I'll include that in my list. Roth, Keitel, Madsen, Penn were all great but Buscemi stole the show. Sama ng role ni Tarantino dito hehe.
  • hmmm...i'm not so sure if Reservoir Dogs is a gangster movie...probably not, though. i like any gangster movie directed by Scorsese. "Hoodlums" is pretty good too (or am i just biased because Tim Roth is in it?).

    bunny: "Swingers" has an all-male ensemble.
  • u guys should see BLOOD IN, BLOOD OUT. it's the best gangster movie for me. ;)
  • Oscar: yeah that was one hell of a movie... OK yung betrayal part dun, hindi expected...
    Yo chico... Ora le... (ano nga ba ibig sabihin nun)

    BTW, this is probably better classified as a "gang-related" movie, as opposed to gangsters (mafia related)...

    For mob movies, Goodfellas was probably the best outside of the Godfather series.

    For gangster movies not necessarily mob movies, perhaps add classics like Bonnie and Clyde, North by Northwest and Pulp Fiction.
  • godfather 2, goodfellas, and godfather.
  • Pulp fiction coz john travolta's there *sigh*
  • The Untouchables and New Jack City

  • Is 'The Usual Suspects' classified as a gangster movie?

    Another great film of the same genre is 'Hoodlum' with Lawrence Fishburn and Tim Roth.
  • goodfellas is one of my all-time faves! donnie brasco's good too.. those tarantino films are ok too. never really thought them gangsta movies though :)
  • nothing beats The Godfather.
  • The Godfather trilogy sorta dictated how gangster movies SHOULD be... But I'd say outside the trilogy...Hoodlums or the goodfellas
  • personally, i liked THE UNTOUCHABLES and CASINO. pero for comedic purposes... ANALYZE THIS. ang cute! lol.gif

    diba pinalabas nila yung hoodlum sa star movies? kelan kaya nila uulitin?
  • Goodfellas. But "The Godfather" is truly the godfather of gangster movies.

    The Godfather I & II would still be tops (even tho I never saw them in the big screen), f'course. But outside that- Goodfellas and Donnie Brasco (the best gangster movie I actually saw in a cinema) are worthy enuff to be up there with The Corleones. The worst for me are Bugsy and Casino.

    How about films like New Jack City, The Usual Suspects, Reservoir Dogs? They're not exactly mafia, I know... but they had major "gangster" characters, right? You know... cool organized crime stuff. :D
