An ok movie about Don Aronow but really lacking in facts, one thing they did was changed the first name from Don to Ben, that was in very poor taste because the name of the man who put the hit on Don Aronow is Ben Kramer who is serving a life sentence in prison for ordering the murder/hit of Don Aronow.
This was really a lost opportunity to have done a really great documentary of Don Aronow. While we will never know the full truth it is no secrete that Don Aronow had dealings with some very bad people, George H.W. Bush who was the Vice President at the time made a deal with Don Aronow to build the government boats that would be as fast or faster as the boats the drug smugglers were using that were built by Don Aronow.
Ben Kramer bought the boat company from Done Aronow that had the contract to build those boats for the government but when the government found out about the change of ownership and Ben Kramers criminal back ground they canceled the contract that worth upwards of one hundred million dollars.
Ben Kramer was very upset about that and he arranged for the murder/hit on Don Aronow.
The movie falls far short of getting this story correct but if you ignore everything they got wrong it is a decent movie.
