Film information

Story: Box set containing three popular thriller movies. 'Charlie' (2004) is a London gangster film based on the story of real life gang boss Charlie Richardson (Luke Goss), who, along with his brother Eddy (Langley Kirkwood), ruled the criminal underworld of South London in the early 1960s. As Charlie gets increasingly powerful, he becomes involved with white South African businessman Richard Waldeck (Leslie Grantham), and ends up being party to political crimes against members of the ANC. In 1966 Charlie is caught and put on trial, but the witnesses who testify at his court case are gruesomely punished by his gang, leading to the Judge (Antony Carrick) handing down a 25-year sentence in what bcame known as the 'Torture Trial'. Steven Berkoff and Anita Dobson play Charlie's parents. 'Traffic' (2000) is Steven Soderbergh's ambitious attempt to map out the different aspects of the illegal drug trade. The film is set in San Diego in the present day and a pair of undercover DEA agents (Don Cheadle and Luis Guzman) are doing their best to bring drug baron Carlos Ayala (Steven Bauer) to trial. Across the border in Mexico, police officer Javier Rodriguez (Benicio del Toro) joins the National Drug Force, a special unit commanded by General Salazar (Tomas Milian) and charged with bringing down the local Obregon drug cartel. Ayala's wife Helena (Catherine Zeta Jones) travels to Tijuana to meet Obregon representatives and strikes a deal intended to save her husband's life. Rodriguez begins to suspect that the Task Force has undeclared connections to the supposedly defunct Juarez cartel, the major rivals to the Obregons. Salazar meanwhile meets with US drug czar Robert Wakefield (Michael Douglas), a man whose dedication to his work blinds him to the fact that his own daughter is gradually sliding into drug addiction. Finally, in 'Donnie Brasco' (1997), in late Seventies New York, FBI agent Joe Pistone (Johnny Depp) has to go undercover to infiltrate the Mafia as 'Donnie Brasco'. He befriends ageing hitman Lefty Ruggerio (Al Pacino), who inducts him into the ways of the Mob. As Brasco, Pistone becomes immersed in the Mafia world of violence, but at the same time comes to regard Lefty as a friend. He knows that when his assignment is over and his cover blown, it will mean certain death for the man who has taken him under his wing.
