WIN a double pass to Kill the Irishman

01 June, 2011 by IF

Over the summer of 1976, thirty-six bombs detonate in the heart of Cleveland while a turf war raged between Irish mobster Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) and the Italian mafia. Based on a true story, Kill the Irishman chronicles Greene’s heroic rise from a tough Cleveland neighborhood to become an enforcer in the local mob.

Turning the tables on loan shark Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken) and allying himself with gangster John Nardi (Vincent D’Onofrio), Greene stops taking orders from the mafia and pursues his own power. Surviving countless assassination attempts from the mob and killing off anyone who went after him in retaliation, Danny Greene’s infamous invincibility and notorious fearlessness eventually led to the collapse of mafia syndicates across the U.S. and also earned him the status of the man the mob couldn’t kill.


Written and directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, Kill the Irishman is inspired by Rick Porello’s true crime account "To Kill The Irishman: The War That Crippled The Mafia."

Sporting an amazing cast, including Val Kilmer, Paul Sorvino and an explosive performance from Ray Stevenson (Thor, The Other Guys), the film opened to a screen average of nearly $30,000 in the United States in March.

Released by Anchor Bay Films, Kill the Irishman will only have 2 cinema screenings in Sydney – at the Ritz Cinema in Randwick, one of Sydney’s last remaining independent, art-deco cinemas.
