    The film had less to do with Mitchel's attempt to redeem his ways after getting out of prison, and finding a job protecting a disturbed former star, Charlotte (Kiera Knightley), than it had to do with Mitchel's battle in the underworld, avenging a friend.

    Mitchel's relationship to Charlotte was all in all rather hasty and not very deep. Charlotte's friend/agent/whatever Jordan (David Thewlis) was also a bit hard to figure out, although I liked him.

    The gangster side of the movie was bloody, a bit hard to follow, and consumed in the end everything in its way. The plot wasn't all that smooth, and the acting was okay, but not brilliant or anything. A nice film for anyone who enjoys seeing Colin Farrell, but I am left with a feeling that they could have done so much more with this by actually sticking with the Mitchel/Charlotte storyline.

    A cool, likable film that feels better than it really is. I liked the vast majority of the movie, the script, cast, style, etc., it's just a boring film that never grabbed my attention like so many other films of its genre have. Full Review »
