    This movie is very good. I'd first like to add that I think critics are slowly, collectively starting to lose their minds, for some strange reason I can't understand. I used to agree with them 9 out of 10 times. Until, I saw 'A History of Violence', how that movie was heraled is more of a mystery to me than Dakota Fanning's maturity.

I used to agree with them 9 out of 10 times. Until, I saw 'A History of Violence', how that movie was heraled is more of a mystery to me than Dakota Fanning's maturity. Secondly, I'd like to add that I am a moderately selective film-goer, so I'd like to think of my thoughts as having some weight, but while I avoid films like 'XXX' and 'Big Momma's House', I am only human. Still, this movie has some brains. I don't know how the "Onion" writer even compared it to Mamet. First of all Mamet's writing is usually of a conflicting nature, he writes more insults and jabs, than intellectual and spirtually thought-provoking talk like in 'London.' It's of a COMPLETELY different nature. See for yourself though. And hold on to your sanity. Expand

    These actors know how to pose, understand how to move: Evans crouching in torment, Statham

    This movie captures the feeling of being high on coke in a thought provoking and engaging manner. Sure, the protagonist is an asshole, but he's also real. We don't have to like the main character in order to believe that the he's twisted.

    For those who enjoy fashion-model-looking twentysomethings yelling at each other in bathrooms while doing too much cocaine, voila! Heaven is a place called London.

    Syd's (Chris Evans) emotional tailspin is embarrassingly banal, and his assertion that "everybody here hates me" quickly applies to the audience as well.

    London has a distinct Off-Off-Broadway feel. There's a stagebound quality to its handful of claustrophobic locations, its endless assault of intense coke talk, and its third-rate invocation of David Mamet, David Rabe, and Neil LaBute.
