  1. If there's one defining characteristic among English criminals, it's that they apparently are a quirky lot. That, at least, is the conclusion one draws from the endless series of comically tinged British crime thrillers that have come down the pike during recent years, of which the mediocre Perrier's Bounty is the latest example.
  2. Perrier's Bounty puts on a pretty good show: fast, foul, corny, strange.

    Perrier’s Bounty is all stock material, full of characters that deserve more than the cliched shootouts and showdowns that befall them. Even the movie’s most natural impulses seem to come from a can.

    There’s no doubting the energy, but without Colin Farrell’s fervour, or any novel spin, it’s no more than treading water from this gang.
  5. There's no one to root for but the loan shark, who makes an excellent point: It's no fun when somebody takes your cash and gives you nothing in return.
  6. 40
    It takes more than a few good actors playing bad apples to sustain such familiar romps through regurgitated material. There’s no bounty to be plucked from Perrier’s Bounty. The treasure chest has long since been emptied.
  7. A poor man’s “In Bruges” that frantically chases itself in circles.

It felt as if there was no pulse and I am a bit sorry I got someone else to watch it with me. Full Review »
