The Gods

review by
Mike Haberfelner

Once upon a time Mikey James (Mykel Shannon Jenkins) and Anthony Fasano (Kevin Interdonato) were the closest of friends, so much so that Mikey was married to Anthony's sister, and their crime families managed to share the city peacefully. But then there was an incident that killed Mikey's wife/Anthony's sister, and since, Mikey, his brothers Keith (Nicoye Banks, Casey Ford Alexander) were forced into hiding. However, a debt with the big bosses forces them out of hiding again, and veteran gangster Olympus (Ernest Thomas) manages to broker a peace with Anthony and gang. However the peace is fragile from the first, when Mikey and Anthony beat the crap out of one another instead of shaking hands, and things get worse from there, not only because there's still much unfinished business between the two families, but also because they're outside players more than interested to fan the fire. And since both Mikey and Anthony's visions are blurred by what had gone down earlier, they know no other direction to drive but to eventually crash into one another ...


Now granted, there are parts of this movie that are a bit hard to understand without having seen The Gods first (and remembering plot details at that), and especially without that prior knowledge this movie does feel a bit long, clocking in at over two hours. But even when caught cold when it comes to understanding the background story, this film has plenty to go for it, not only is it rather elegantly directed and yet features plenty of tension and violence to keep the audience at the edges of their seats, it also features a very engaging story about trust, loyalty and betrayal, that despite relying on many a gangster movie trope manages to keep things and surprise the audience time and again. And very decent performances by all those involved manage to make this a pretty cool gangster movie.
