Read my other reply on what constitutes Organized Crime and The Mob.
You CANNOT rely on keywords in this database. They are screwed up by people that have no concept of what a movie IS!

Ed Jones (XLIX), I'd rather not subscribe to your opinion on keywords even though that was my opinion years ago: I thought of keywords as unusable and now they're some of the most useable thing on IMDb for me. Of course, they're appointed by people so there ought to be some misunderstandings, but it's not something a very simple cross-referencing cannot solve. Excellent tool to navigate through themes and subgenres.

My Brain IS my keyword and genre repository! LOL
When I use keywords for poll generation, the results can be worse than a google search result. 75% useless results vs 25% usable. Weeding through what's useless is too taxing on what brain cells I still have left after many years of abuse!

All the movies on the list are fucking good, De Niro was born for this kind of movies, my choice is Casino since Goodfellas and The Godfather II would probably take all the votes.

I actually like Casino also over the other two. Having to deal with an out of control wife puts his performance way above the other two roles which were much more subtle and understated.

I prefer Goodfellas, I like the Godfather part II, but I don't think that his role in it is memorable.

In my inner eye I see a long bar at 'The Godfather II' and some further short bars at the other options. :)

Not sure look this poll The Godfather II is only 3rd position:https://www.imdb.com/poll/b3kOYNIrozA/results?answer=2&ref_=po_rv

I think that people will tend to vote with the interpretation of Robert De Niro in this case. 

So, Goodfellas will probably win because Taxi Driver is not a mob movie.
