Making Of The Mob: New York (2015 TV Docudrama/Anchor Bay Blu-ray Set)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: B Episodes: B

If you're a fan of Gangster and mob-type stories or movies like The Godfather, Goodfellas, or Public Enemies, then you can't go wrong with Making Of The Mob: New York (2015), an awesome movie/TV mini-series documentary that tells of the rise of several New York Gangsters through cinematic reenactments and photographs.

Emmy-winning actor Ray Liotta -- who starred as real-life gangster Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese's GoodFellas -- narrates an eight-part docudrama that traces the rise of organized crime in America. The series blends dramatic scenes, archival footage and visual effects to show how notorious wiseguys like Charles "Lucky" Luciano and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel transformed from neighborhood gang members in the early 1900s to murderous entrepreneurs and bootleggers. Included are exclusive interviews with former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, Meyer Lansky II, Chazz Palminteri, Drea de Matteo, Joe Mantegna, Frankie Valli (of the group The Four Seasons), mob attorney and former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, noted author and historian David Pietrusza, and many others.

There are eight episodes including The Education of Lucky Luciano, Equal Opportunity Gangster, King of New York, A Rising Threat, Exit Strategy, The Mob at War, New Frontiers, and End Game.

Presented in high definition with a sharp 1080p transfer and a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 paired with a lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track, the show looks and sounds amazing on Blu-ray disc; especially for a documentary mini-series. Extras include Additional Scenes, The Real Arnold Rothstein, The Secret Wife Of A Mob Wife, The Mob and Mussolini, Style, Mob Innovations, and Mob Shrink.

This is a loaded release with lots of cool stuff for both fans of Gangster films and historians as well.
