Who’s More Dangerous – A De Niro Mob Man or a De Niro Psychopath?

de-niro-tournament-560.jpg

Robert De Niro’s tough guys may come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: you don’t want to get on their bad side. His mobsters like The Untouchables‘s Al Capone and The Godfather, Part II’s Michael Corleone wouldn’t think twice before ordering someone to tuck you in with the fishes. But men like Cape Fear‘s Max Cady and Taxi Driver‘s Travis Bickle would relish doing the deed themselves. So which De Niro killing machine is the deadliest? Vote below… if you dare.

The Corleones Rule in The Godfather Trilogy (and Over All Other Movie Mobsters, Too)

tournament-mafia-deniro-brando-560.jpg

Movies like Casino, The Untouchables and GoodFellas all have a common thread in that they get film-goers acquainted with true historic mobsters like Sam “Ace” Rothstein, Al Capone and Henry Hill. But can any of those real-life characters compete with the mythical stature of a fictional gangster like Vito Corleone? (Or his son Michael, for that matter?) When it comes to mafiosos, The Godfather rules. But which Godfather? That’s up to you to decide.

Which Godfather Character Kills the Competition? Let the Battle Begin

the-godfather-tournament.jpg

Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather epic brought several powerful Capos to the screen (and even more tough guys who never made it to the very top). And while by the end of The Godfather III‘s closing credits, the reign of Michael (Al Pacino) has ended, things might’ve turned out differently sooner if you’d armed him, Vito (Marlon Brando), Fredo Corleone (John Cazale) and Tom Hagen (Robert Duvall), put them all in a bar, then had them shoot it out to a final finish. Who’s the toughest mafioso in the greatest mob trilogy ever made? And who will end up sleeping with the fishes?
