Caige Johnson (15 days ago)
Number 10. Sean Pean...not buying his false movie persona anymore, when in real life a bleeding heart...nope...Sick of actors playing tough guy roles which in real life nothing like... Next! 9. Dinero or however spelled, also is a let down to me...to be so viscous on film, yet such a bleeding heart in real life disturbs me... Next! Number 7. Jack N gets a free pass from me, cause at least they keep their politics silent... Number 6. never heard of move before, so no comment Number 5, Bugsy, or whatever, always found this portrayal to mainstream...to plastic...to studio... Next! Number 4, gangs of New York...no comment Number 3...'Casino', A + Number 2...'American Gangster' A+ Number 1 'Goodfella's' A+... 3, 2, and 1 are films could watch over and over again in that they have certain real life grittiness about them....be well

Range Man (18 days ago)
The real horror of video performances , is the permanent effect they leave on our subconscious ...people can no longer discern real from unreal ...we are a nation of imitators with no identity... the power of TV and cinema is not understood by 'the public...we are programmed zombies.

geno007able (5 days ago)
+StrasbergProtégé you have just admitted God was.. To be in this world or at anytime and believe takes more strength and guts than not to believe, I am not judging you, just telling you a fact, ask the Christians in the middle east. you can lump me in with the list of the founding fathers of the USA. in the past they dismissed the earth was round, some of us know it's not, lol. PS: Christ died of all of our sins. He has left the door open for you to walk across the threshold.

DE NIRO WILL BE ON THE LIST AGAIN NEXT YEAR WITH THE IRISHMAN
Rat Bat Nuff Time (25 days ago)
Tim Roth did not edge Laurence Fishburne out. I watched this movie and Laurence Fishburne was undoubtedly the star.
Daqian Cao (25 days ago)
Jacques Mesrine should be on this list too!
Sam Ideen (25 days ago)
*Great list but UNBELIEVABLE that Joe Pesci didn't even get mentioned. Also, DeNiro's portrayal in Casino is actually Sammy "The Bull" and not "Ace." You were probably going off of the nickname from the movie though which is understandable.*
Walter Watson (26 days ago)
No Scarface? Are you guys serious???
Josh Delgado (26 days ago)

Legendary Lincoln (1 month ago)
I agree that Ray Liotta did a fantastic job portraying Henry Hill, but Joe Pesci produced the oscar winning performance in Goodfellas and should've been the one to top the list.

Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Black Mass could've made this list.
Henry Kujawa (1 month ago)
These kind of lists really need to expand into TELEVISION. In this case, one single TV series, 'THE GANGSTER CHRONICLES" (1981, 13 episodes) had quite possibly the best casting and performances ever seen of Al Capone, Dutch Schultz, Lucky Luciano, Bugsy Siegel, and more, but it never gets mentioned because it was on TV.

Yeah. Frank Lucas was running much of New Yorks Hereon trade at the same time as Niki Barnes. He was trained by legendary Bumpy Johnson of Harlem who once worked for the Mafia and battled it out against Dutch Shultz in the 30s.

Warren Beatty, on this list, let alone that high? GTFO. And Ray Liotta at the number one spot?!
Jose Melendez (1 month ago)
I think for me this is my opinion the best gangster movie Scarface hands now
OlympusHeavyCavalry (1 month ago)
Lucas was in direct competition with some of the well known future presidents and their mates in the department of the interior (check allen dulles, prescott bush and cross reference their friends and to Cuba as well) who were using their c.i.a., business and government credentials to fly the shit in from Laos, cambodia and thailand via oil rigs/wells in most cases owned by the bushes through the military. They wanted to control the world's second largest supply of opium, couldn't do it, so they fucked over Afghanistan instead.

Id have gone for Pesci in Goodfellas as #1 over Ray Liotta

Even though in Italian, "Il Capo Dei Capi" should be here. It portrays Tota Rina #LaCosaNostra. It is a great movie.
