  1. steeeeellaaaaa (Iulia N)'s rating of the film The Limey

  2. Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film The Limey

    Possibly the worst edited and directed film since Zabriskie Point. Flash forwards, flash backwards, flash bloody sideways; slow-mo, fast-mo, every cliché in the book. Result? Confused irritation on the viewer's part. Two stars only because I'm feeling generous and because the excess of gratuitous violence made me giggle.

  3. Jérémy Poirier's rating of the film The Limey

    A tightly well made moody crime drama/thriller centered on a man (played savagely by Terrence Stamp) seeking vengeance after the presumed accidental death of his daughter. This tale is told in an incredible and different way than most films of the genre. Steven Soderbergh is such a unique and versatile filmmaker and this film should be praised way more. Still, I get why it doesn't work for some viewers.

  5. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film The Limey

    I'm not big on this experimental editing style. The story would have gained by having the nihilist gravitas of movies like Night Moves or Point Blank. Still, Soderbergh is a master of his craft and the truth is that The Limey offers a powerful trio of exquisite photography, performance and score.

  6. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film The Limey

    The cinematography of the Limey is what strikes me as what I consider to be ultra 90's. Reminds me of a lot of nice stuff from back then, but with the added bonus of the non-linear sound/shots. Other than that it's a nice genre film, great watch for most people most of the time.

  8. Finbar Somers's rating of the film The Limey

    Tempted to 5 it just for the scene where he chucks the guy off the balcony

  9. Addy K.'s rating of the film The Limey

    Soderbergh's trademark efficiency in this late 90s gem is all too evident when characters are reduced to their basic essence (Peter Fonda's villain is "evil" because he's devoid of good; Terence Stamp's ex-con from England has only one plan: find the villain, make him suffer, smoke cigarettes). When screenwriter Lem Dobbs pursued Robert Aldrich to direct, he ignored Dobbs. Soderbergh, instead, ennobles his script.

    sarah flack's editing, kicks ass.*Just re-watched with commentary, so so good.

  13. galuh indri's rating of the film The Limey

    Loving the dramatic style.

  14. Richard Punch's rating of the film The Limey

  15. alphonse's rating of the film The Limey

    Steven Soderbergh's follow-up to the brilliant Elmore Leonard adaptation, Out of Sight, is another powerful crime film with a strong comedic streak running throughout the film. From the great script written by Lem Dobbs that brings great dialogue and humour and Soderbergh's thrilling, competent direction to Terrence Stamp's flawless performance, bringing a natural wit to the story, The Limey is a must-watch.

  16. Tigrão's rating of the film The Limey

    One of the 'smaller' Soderbergh movies, it's nonetheless fascinating in its storyline and editing. Terrence Stamp kicks ass, and I absolutely loved the idea of using clips of "Poor Cow" to create this sort of "meta" back-story to this character.

  17. Scentless Apprentice's rating of the film The Limey

    There's a better version of this. It's called Point Blank.

  18. Tim Speaker's rating of the film The Limey

    Great 70's Peckinpah revenge throwback. Stamp is a blast to watch as he chews the scenery in a borderline over the top, bravura performance. Fonda is wonderful, the embodiment of laid back smarmy California cool. Not enough to hook you? OK, then just watch it for the sublime editing and photographic compositions. Soderbergh might have made more "important" films, but non this fun.

  19. orangey's rating of the film The Limey

    Along with Che, Soderbergh's best movie

  20. mjgildea's rating of the film The Limey

    The Limey is one of those smaller great movies not a lot of people know about. It starts off damn strong but loses some steam by the end and is drenched in Soderberghness all throughout. (Namely the incredibly creative Poor Tom... samples used for the flashbacks) Terence Stamps voice seemed too refined and regal for the Cockney thing but he was great nonetheless. The warehouse scene alone is worth the watch.

  21. Adam Moody's rating of the film The Limey

    Another example of Steven Soderbergh making a film much more interesting than it would've been. Straightforward neo-noir strengthened by stylish narrative and visual techniques. Oh, and Terence Stamp!

  22. Keldon's rating of the film The Limey

    surprised that none of the posts on this wall mentioned how funny this is.
