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.
3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Not a bad watch at all. London Boulevard is like a Guy Ritchie movie stripped of all -- I mean most of its quirkiness (David Thewlis alone makes this worth the watch) and forces its cast to act instead of perform. Even if the story didn't offer much in the way of surprises the soundtrack more than made up for it.
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).
This is about a man who wants to leave behind his criminal life. But, the harder he tries to do, the more he is drawn back. Top thriller with interesting & exotic characters performed by outstanding actors. Colin Farrel is absolutely cool. The way he plays Mitchel & his enormous capacity for violence which is suppressed with good manners, politeness & utmost caution, is fantastic. Fine dialogues. Underrated movie.
Mujeres caóticas de cabello castaño y mirada fascinante la cuál no sabemos si es producto de la crisis de abstinencia o de un posible ataque de pánico. Montajes buenos con buenas canciones en una historia llena de personajes arrastrados por las circunstancias del momento. Irremediablemente aceptable.
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.
