    See it only for Paul Bettany's performance.
  2. The actors all function as best they can as glowering clichés, though the narrative's temporal jump presents difficulties.

    Enjoyable tale of a aging London gangsters reminiscent look back upon his violent rise from muscle man to top dog through the 1960's and 1970's. Well acted all around and Paul Bettany plays the role of a psychotic young hood brilliantly. Well worth a watch. Full Review »
