Neale, S (2000), Stankic, N. (2004), F, Manson (2002) and Dirkis, T (1995) agree that the characters in gangsters movies are a part of gang or single personalities. Moreover the characters have their code of behavior. Gangsters are usually clever, strange, unexplained, and smart –streets, they do not care about moral values and they are self destructive. Characters are also very dedicated to the business that they are doing no matter that that is something illegal. Earlier the gangsters were colored people but in now days that can be anybody. Gangs or mafias usually are connected by same ethnic identity and most common are Italian mafia, black gangs, Russian mafia, Irish and etc. Characters often have deviant relationship with women; moreover they are used as a decoration, asset or characteristics of power like a witch, car or cigarette. Furthermore there are characters that public love even if they are bad guys, but there are the others that are bad guys between bad ones. The example for this is Godfather, where the gang is part of some feudal system, and bosses are staying out of gang, anonymous and distant, they are hiding behind the brave leader of gang, this kind characters public does not love.

Their personality is presented by weapons which they use or wardrobe style and car they drive. Music is also important; it can be mystic or fast and it always follows the atmosphere.
