Excellent gangster movie. Lock Stock meets Carlito's Way.
A fairly quirky little London gangster story that offers few fresh ideas to the British crime film collection, but, manages to uphold a 1960s film style and delivered quite a few laughs. The ending left much to be desired, but at least most of the reprehensible characters get what they deserve (strangely, perhaps the most reprehensible of characters receives no punishment).
The best part was the credits. And no, this is not some smart-ass way of saying it sucked and I was glad it ended. Yes, it did suck, but also, the typography and graphic design in the credits was pretty fucking awesome.
William Monahan directs as well as he writes with punched up character work filled expertly and cast perfectly. Charismatic and catchy in a sea of pastiche wannabe gangster flicks, this is bright lights and big shots for Colin Farrell, Keira Knightley & Ray Winstone. Brilliant pairs with big grins from David Thewlis & Ben Chaplin. Lots to like, color & character go a long way - too bad so many die by curtain call.
Great acting but I didn't find to much of a story.
Layer Cake 2: Things Happening Because There Would Be No Movie If Things Didn't Happen So Shut Up
Really flat considering the cast.
why... why always romance & love must be a part in most of movies today - it's so totally boring..! the movie started good, but i just was pissed off when it turns into kind of Bodyguard 2010 - the best thing was the role of Farrell..!
It's a shame such a good cast, But the story was nothing you haven't seen before though the third act did have it's share of surprises. Considering the talent involved it should have been better.
Un diesel. Tra le partenze più lunghe in assoluto in un film. Eventi smozzicati e poco mordente. Gli ultimi 25 minuti regalano un climax di tutto rispetto. Buonissime le musiche (Sergio Pizzorno le cura). Fosse stato più dinamico, sarebbe stato una chicca.
I don't really understand why everybody hates this film.
I quite enjoyed the film. Especially the soundtrack. Ray Winstone was great as always. I suggest watching it.
I knew it was crap - but i still watched it (the only good thing is the music \ Keira Knightley)...
A mashup between In Brugges and Notting Hill where Colin Farrell tries to play Robert de Niro.
Story a bit like Layercake...
But good acting.
I don't get the title, "London Boulevard"...
Good flick though, 7/10
A sad incoherent misunderstanding, living up to its name - lots of streets in it.
