Madso's War is a 2010 crime drama TV film about the Irish Mob of Boston.[1]

It originally started off as a backdoor pilot called the War of '04 for Spike TV. It was loosely-inspired by the period of chaos in the South Boston underworld after James "Whitey" Bulger fled from the area in the early 1990s.[citation needed]


Mike "Madso" Madden leads a gang of criminals on the streets of Boston. When an Irish mob boss goes on the lam, Madso and his gang are thrust into a street war, as gangsters and corrupt cops fight it out for control of the mob bosses' fortune.
