  1. Fast, convulsive, and densely exciting new British gangster thriller.
  2. 88
    Craig is fascinating here as a criminal who is very smart, and finds that is not an advantage because while you might be able to figure out what another smart person is about to do, dumbos like the men he works for are likely to do anything.
  3. Don't let the fast-and-loose vibe fool you: Right up to its operatic finale, this is one tight one last job.
  4. Things get a little tricky by the end, but it's the sort of trickery that's immensely satisfying.
  5. Doesn't reveal all its layers until you've taken the last bite.

    Somewhat great, but a great predecessor to Matthew Vaughn's hollywood masterpieces. Once again, you get to see the pure brilliance and genius of Matthew Vaughn. I **** love that talented bastard. Full Review »
