Intimidating black actors
Another subversion can be to have the character only act this way in certain specific situations—a man might be a loving father and an otherwise affable and easygoing person..immediately turns into an enraged Papa Wolf whenever his loved ones are threatened.
It takes more than just a bad-ass mobster to make a “killer” Mafia movie.
Anastasia didn’t have a large enough role in the movie Lucky Luciano: 10/10 Angelo Infanti as Lucky Luciano: 9/10 Angelo Infanto: 7/10 As the first official boss of the Genovese crime family, the real life Lucky Luciano is known as the “father of modern organized crime”.
With his reorganization skills he was key for the Genovese family in the heroin trafficking ring.
You also need a set of great actors; here are some great tough-guy mobsters and the actors that portrayed them on the big screen.
Let’s see if we can compare the toughness of the real life mobster to that of the character portrayed by the actor, and the actor himself.
Joseph Valachi was the first to publicly admit that the Mafia does indeed exist.
The obvious subversion is to make this character not nearly as scary personality-wise as their imposing first appearances might otherwise suggest.The way Valachi tells the story is that he wanted to do a service for the people.
