It's a Guy Richie film with an all star cast. Although the storyline isn't anything new, a typical power struggle between criminals and a intricate
web of conflict via multiple groups.
It centers around a man who is trying to "retire" from the business, his decision to sell off his empire invokes a whirlwind of chaos with multiple
factions trying to enrich themselves and their enterprises. It's told through long cutscenes of a PI who has followed all the action and documented it
to sell the story to a local rag. But before he does that, he approaches the 2nd in command of the main character in an attempt to extort some
It's a bit slow at times and there is some confusion of events given it's a retelling via a 3rd party observer, but all the main points are crystal
The real enjoyment I had was the cast, a great cast under an excellent director is something pleasant to watch. I always liked Colin Farrell(I'm going
to dust off In Bruges and watch that tomorrow), maybe it helps that he tends to stay pretty low and doesn't do much work, with regard to (what I
assume) is his ability to basically get any part he wants.
Well worth a watch if you are a fan of Guy or any of the main actors, or just the "euro" crime films.
It was an enjoyable film, with excellent acting and while a straightforward storyline was somewhat obvious, there was a few twists to keep it flowing.
