By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Mitchell (Colin Farell) has just been released from prison. The one thing he has realised is that he never wants to go back, so when 'old friends' offer him work at his release party he is reluctant to accept. Meanwhile, young starlet Charlotte (Keira Knightley) needs someone a bit 'handy' around her property to keep out the hounding paparazzi and hires Mitchell to mind the fences. Mitchell's attempt to go straight is thrown off track when his past catches up to him and places his new employer in peril, will he manage to shake off his reputation and begin afresh with Charlotte?

London Boulevard is a sinuous London Gangster-movie with an all-star cast. Ray Winstone (The Departed) plays the sharp-suited and even sharper-tongued mob-boss with great aplomb. The stunning Anna Friel plays Mitchell's alcoholic sister with panache whilst David Thelwiss (Mr Nice) plays Charlotte's agoraphobic pot-smoking house-sitting personal aid Jordan with true flair, carrying most scenes he is in with his thespian-dramatic mannerisms. There are even familiar names in the smaller parts too: Eddie Marsan (The Disappearance of Alice Creed) plays a crooked cop and Matt King (Rocknrolla) is part of the mobsters inner circle. It's well directed by William Monahan with most of the metropolitan vistas featuring a billboard of Charlotte in a Warholesque print really bringing a theme of continuity to the film as Mitchell falls for her.

3.0 out of 5 stars Promised so much, failed to deliver 14 Aug 2012
By Carty
Format:DVD
David Thelwiss is superb as Charlotte's personal aid, and Ray Winstone does what comes naturally as the rackateer boss, although the increasing use of that particular swearword is unecessary. Having read the other reviews, I think Anna Friel is overrated, but Farrell and Knightley are both dreadful. Farrell is wooden throughout and doesn't look remotely convincing when showing any resemblance of menace. Knightley just mumbles her way through the film and offers nothing. Despite the ending which leaves me more short-changed from a film than I can remember, and is a clear Layer Cake rip-off. The plot offers massive potential, unlike other British gangster films like Layer Cake and Lock Stock, which are best taken at face value, but leaves so much undeveloped that is falls into an exercise in style over substance. Could have been better if the casting had been properly though out and didn't rely on using big names to get the revenue back in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 2 Sep 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a real pity the movie didn't match the story in the book, poor casting by the director as I'd have had Anna Friel playing the ageing thespian as opposed to Keira Knightly playing a movie star that is only famous for shedding her clothing at the drop of a hat

2.0 out of 5 stars a disappointing effort. 13 Feb 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I am a huge Ray Winstone fan but he has really disappointed me in this film, his character was just so unbelievable and his henchmen were something from an old style comic book.

Not much of a story, there was no chemistry between the two leading actors and the ending was just pathetic (it was if the writers had lost interest and had decided to finish the film pronto).

The only highlight for me was the use of the Yardbird's classic "Heart full of Soul" on the soundtrack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars a bit odd with a crappy ending 17 July 2012
By c1h8e0l
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film is about a guy who gets out of prison and tries very hard not to get sucked back into his criminal lifestyle despite the fact that everyone he knows is invloved in crime. He meets a film star whos is too scared to go out. This is where the film gets a bit weird and loses the plot. The end is abrupt and disconnected with the rest of the film and left me with a cheated feeling. Even though I own the DVD i dont think I'll ever watch it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONCE A CRIMINAL! 18 April 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have read mixed reviews for this film,but i personally really enjoyed it.Colin Farrell never lets you down and Ray Winstone is perfect in their roles.Not a fan of Keira Knightley who seems to pout her way through films,it was only her character in my opinion that let the film down.Other than that London Boulevard is up there with Layer Cake and Love Honor and Obey,all great british ganster films.

A very violent movie full of expletives but I think the performances are good and it holds your attention. Somehow I doubt if it will be shown on tv in the near future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up my Boulevard I'm afraid!
This DVD was mediocre. The plot purile and the characters sterile.
Things were not helped by Winstone's overacting and Knightley's pouting and general flouncing around! Read more

Keira Knightley is almost pointless is this movie and it's a bit odd to hear Colin Farrell with a London accent. I don't like the end. Read more
