Jude Law is great, but the pacing of the story lacks any rhythm. Some scenes play too long and while a rambling narrative can be a fun ride, there's just a bit too much slack here to support Law's performance.

Some scenes play too long and while a rambling narrative can be a fun ride, there's just a bit too much slack here to support Law's performance. It tips into the green because the cast as a whole is fun to watch and Shepard makes some fun choices in his use of music, color, camera angle and slow motion. Expand

This is a foul mouthed lark on the order of Sexy Beast, but is lifted to the level of superb by the all stops out performance of Jude Law. Who would have thought Gentleman Jude had it in him?

Who would have thought Gentleman Jude had it in him? He gives the whole film a glorious manic energy. Great fun but violent and as profane as Wall Street's Wolf. Expand

Jude Law is amazing. What a brilliant performance. Great screenplay, actors, cinematography, editing, score, art direction and director. A total thrill ride with some amazing and amusing dialogue. Don't miss it.

Jude Law flexes his muscles (figuratively and literally) as a brash, bellicose safecracker who gets out of jail after 12 years. He sets out (with friend Richard E. Grant) to collect what's owed him and reconnect with his daughter. This is oneJude Law flexes his muscles (figuratively and literally) as a brash, bellicose safecracker who gets out of jail after 12 years. He sets out (with friend Richard E. Grant) to collect what's owed him and reconnect with his daughter. This is one of those roles that gives a classy actor a chance to play against type and Law approaches it with gusto: cussing, ranting and violently attacking every one and every scene. While it's fun to watch (and sometimes too much), the character doesn't draw much sympathy until it's almost over. The writing and direction are solid without elevating the film to exceptional, but Law's energy makes it worthwhile. Expand

Some critics called Dom Hemingway "inconsequential" and I can't argue w/ that. What I can say in its favor, though, is that Jude Law is a revelation.

What I can say in its favor, though, is that Jude Law is a revelation. I've never been a huge fan, found him satisfactory in The Talented Mr. Ripley but his casting often seems predictable. Dom Hemingway is, surprisingly, his vehicle par excellence, hilariously vulgar, Tarantinoesque but less violent, not Oscar bait but if you're in the mood for weird and crazy this is definitely that.
