Fuhgeddaboutit is not just another story about one Mafia family versus another, or even the Mafia versus the Feds. It’s a turf war between two Mafia families and the Mexican cartel, and the F.B.I. against them all, with the added complication of in-fighting and betrayal - and it’s based on true events that transpired in 2009 that most of the world knows nothing about. A mobster from Boston went to Denver to hide but couldn’t help getting a small crew together. One of his pals from New York joined him and they started an illegal gambling operation, recruiting people from Denver to run it. The Colorado Bureau of Investigations
ran a sting operation on it and several fall guys were arrested, even two former Denver Broncos. You’ll meet real-life characters like Mucci, who “passed away” in Boston (under highly suspicious circumstances); and Ponzio, who tried to pocket some of the cartel’s drug money but didn’t live long enough to enjoy it; and Roberto, an established business owner in Cancun the Mexican cartel forced to go to America to run drug cells; and Sammy Blasi, the sole survivor, who sits in prison to this day. The short but intense war these men waged presents a completely unique situation in the gangster film genre. Only a few names and
places have been added or changed “to protect the innocent.” Hold onto your seat as Fuhgeddaboutit unflinchingly tells the bloody tale of an underground Mafia crew that rose to power by building a criminal empire in the volatile heart of New Jersey and some of New York’s toughest neighborhoods. It’s survival of the fittest as the Italian Mafia prepares for a hostile takeover of one of the most ruthless Mexican drug cartels east of the border. Streets become warzones as the suspense mounts, ending in a head-to-head, explosive showdown. To complicate matters, another deadly Mafia crew moves in to claim the remaining territory as undercover F.B.I investigators try to infiltrate all three organizations. With millions up for grabs, the death toll spirals to an all-time high, giving rise to in-fighting
and betrayal. Never before has there been a mafia story so riveting and captivating. It’s Mafia versus cartel, empire versus empire, and only one can win. But as the saying goes, every great empire always takes a fall in the end, so either go all-in . . . or Fuhgeddaboutit!
