Liotta was good but it should have gone to Pecsi as Tommy DeSimone.

where is 'gangs of wasseypur'
awandererTJ (8 days ago)
Ray Liotta #1? Denzel Washington looks like a mafia for God's sake? Gangs of New York fantasy movie? Give me a break. ANY supporting actor in Godfather, or in Mean Streets, or in Scarface, or in Donnie Brasco is a better choice than your top 3.

+awandererTJ William Poole was a real person. Michael Corleone and Tony Montana were not
awandererTJ (4 days ago)
+Morten Aanstad Any gangster movie is less fictional than fairy tale Gangs of New York. If you use a real name for a phony story and overplayed performance that does not make a movie less fictional. All those names are legends after all. When it comes to detail and lifelike characters, there is much more real life in those classic movies that I mentioned, although they change names. Hope you get my point.

You mentioned a lot of fictional movies here
Thomas Knelsen (9 days ago)
Had this video been made after 2015, the likes of Tom Hardy playing the infamous Kray brothers in Legend, and Johnny Depp playing Whitey Bulger in Black Mass should go on this list.
Took some x a couple mins ago still haven’t came up yet think ima go smoke some meth now

Why wasn’t Scarface’s Al Pacino on this?
Jordan100% (8 days ago)
Oh I feel dumb asf I just googled the shit and found out he was actually not real. So Scarface wasn’t an 80’s drug lord? He was fake? Bruh this whole time I thought that shit actually happened and they were remaking it 🤦🏽‍♂️ this explains why tf Al Pacino came up when I googled Scarface or Tony Montana 💀
Morten Aanstad (8 days ago)
Because he's fictional?

Actually you guys consider only Hollywood and not any other film industry. Check out with all those in India you will get more than this. I have seen all movies you opted above and I personally feel that none is better than KAMAL HASSAN'S ''NAYAGAN '' .iam not a kamalfan but still it is a movie all should've watched

Gary Oldman in Leon were he plays the nut case policemen. Then the film True romantic were he plays Drexel , State of grace were he plays the mad Irishman . Gary is one of them underestimate actors but if you have watch he's movies then you will know just how good he can play a gangster or bad man.
alanmeires (1 month ago)
American films and gangsters are always played over the top if you want to watch real close to the mark gangster films then watch British movies because they don't go over the top they keep it real.

Richard Roxburgh as the crooked Detective Seargent Roger Rogerson of Sydney Police in "Blue Murder" should have DEFINITELY been on this list. Why are only US films considered?
Antonio Hamboney (1 month ago)
How tf iz Al pacino not on this list for micheal corleone....or Scarface which was Al Capone.....next let a guy make this list....yall aint even say joe pesci....maaaanstop it!!!!
Morten Aanstad (8 days ago)
1. Michael Corleone is fictional 2. Al Pacino's Scarface has very little to do with the 1932 version, which again only touched barely upon Al Capone

Jimmy Hoffa was no gangster, so he doesn't belong to this list. Pacino's Lefty Ruggiero is more like real-life Sonny Black according to Pistone. Sam Rothstein is completely fictional character.

Casino and Goodfellas best. Some awesome portrayals of real life gangsters in both films.

I'd whack all of these motherfuckers.
Everyone snubs the Depp. Black Mass was terrifying. What about Public Enemies? Both good flicks should have at least been mentioned.

If they don’t have an Italian accent they don’t deserve to be on this list (Except for Denzel he’s great in any role)

You really put Escobar from Blow and not Johnny?? You're literally avoiding Johnny Depp, it's so obvious
