What an excellent movie! If you are fan of English crime thrillers and a fan of Colin Farrell (In Brugges) and Ray WInstone (The Sweeney) then this is a must watch movie. Also stars Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Carribean) and a heap of English actors whose faces I know but names I am not sure of. Far, far better than even I was expecting. The story is one of those way out there scripts that Farrell tens to pick lately. Hard to describe the plot and best I don't anyway but suffice to say, it is sort of a bit like 'Layer Cake' and a lot like the best English TV crime series. Violent in parts and lots of swearing but the acting is 1st class from Farrell and Winstone, plus the supporting cast. The action moves along at a good pace. Highly recommended for lovers of English crime dramas.
Much more violent then expected & quite disappointed with the ending.
Shocker of a movie, don't waste your time.
A high standard flick.Worth watching.Direction,production and acting all first class.
Once again a poor selection. A mivie full of foul language. Never finished watching this and will never again.
Good but not great. Good acting by everyone, worth a watch if youre into gansta movies
Keira Knightly is very pretty. That's a fact. Just don't expect to see her much in this. Stock-standard British gangster movie held up by a good cast. The F-word and the C-word were used far too much though.
Extremely offensive language used continually. Pointless plot with endless violence. Please do not send us anymore MA15.
This was a good action movie and I love Keira Knightly as an actress. I was not expecting the ending which was quite a surprise.
Feels like a mish mash of every other action movie I have scene ...
Don't quite know what I think about this one. All the actors are excellent but it was all fairly predictable. I didn't like the ending but I think it was probably the right one. I always enjoy Colin Farrell and Ray Winstone but all in all this is one I won't be revisiting.
Predictable and uninteresting.
Keira Knightley could have been left out and more of Ray Winstone for me. It's probably not so much the characters but the actors. In general the story was sensitive with a lot of twists and turns and a harshness that I found cruel but seemed to fit the characters. Although not in my present life I know humans are a cruel animal. In the end I forgot that it was Colin Farrell, although he didn't quite lose that little boy look that he seems to constantly use, he did a good job with his character. I can't turn many films off at 15 minutes so i did fast forward a couple of times. Not my favourite picture at all, 3 stars is generous from me.
If you are not bothered by constant crude language you might enjoy otherwise don't bother.
This film takes a lot of time to go no where, still there are some good scenes, and there is some enjoyment to be had in the film. Really a 2.5
A very dissapointing movie that we turned off after just 15mins.
Good gangsta movie - not your typical, guns ablazing kind. Colin was great here - he plays gangster with subtlety that it's devoid of cliches. Perfect role for him.
I don't usually like Colin Farrell but he was excellent in this one! Great story, strong cast, loved it! As the fellow (Daniel) below says: destined for cult status.
Great Movie this one will achieve cult following like Pulp Fiction British version
What a waste of talented people. This is a "don't bother" film. No stars
this is just another movie where you watch the frames rolling one by one in front of you, giving you the feeling of something happening... surelt they do... but actually they are without any meaning... There is nothing in this movie you will miss if you watch it. I reckon it is a wast of time, unless you do the ironing and you need something on TV to go on... Maybe you want to see your favourite actress or actors in a diffrent movie, what you cannot find anywhere else... sure why not if you have plenty of time and you will watch another movie afer this one to feel better... I didn't like the ending too, it's without a 'happy ending'...
Well watch it if you want to see what this movie is all about, but without expecting anything...
