    Good but inaccurate

    This movie is a very good and interesting look into the life and times of Sammy (The Bull) Gravano. However, there are several parts that are inaccurate, such as how the movie makes it look like John Gotti and Gravano were close before the murder of Gambino boss Paul Castellano, and also how Gravanos wife wanted a divorce, which in fact she never did.
