If you like your Boston Irish mafia movies then you may want to add Madso’s War to your collection but otherwise it’s not all that memorable.
Plot: A missing crime boss post-federal indictment. $11 million plus dollars missing. Its up to foot soldier rookie “Madso” (Mathhew Marsden) to solve the mystery and combat the other deceptive criminal cutthroats at work. Will he survive long enough to put everyone in their place?
Review: This Spike TV telefilm has many elements from arguably superior crime films like State of Grace, Point Break, The Departed and more. It’s never lacking in gaining the viewer’s attention yet since all attention has been given to the overcomplicated heist and production values, the character development and action ends up being too by-the-numbers, regardless of the budget or target audience.
