Diesel's mob film `Guilty' of falling flat

Review C

"I'm no gangster, I'm a gagster" is the line most apt to be quoted from Find Me Guilty, the story of a convict who was both. It's not that funny even when you hear it in the movie.

Vin Diesel plays the fact-based role of Giacomo "Jackie Dee" DiNorscio. Already in prison, he refused to cut a deal, then served as his own counsel during the longest criminal trial in U.S. history: the federal prosecution of 20 members of New Jersey's Lucchese crime family on 76 racketeering-related charges.

Find Me Guilty (Yari Film Group) Starring Vin Diesel. Directed by Sidney Lumet. Rated R. Time 124 minutes.
