4.0 out of 5 stars Bit thin 3 Jan 2014
Another film about a couple of diamond geezers, one a blagger (Mark Strong) and the other a copper (played by James McAvoy) in a conspiracy-ridden high tech London. Strong looks and acts the part but casting McAvoy as a hard man is to go against his strengths (Charles Xavier for example); he lacks the physical presence. Even worse if we had to pick a name for a London copper it is unlikely to be Max Lewinsky. The general level of anti-government angst and large numbers of automatic weapons lends the whole thing an American tone that argues against its London locations. I doubt the plot twists will come as a total surprise to many and even a surfeit of dead Evil Marksmen cannot cover that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but overhyped 4 April 2013
Don't believe the hype on this one. It's by no means a bad film, and at times shines, but should it really get plaudits for the fact that it looks so damn slick, making London look icy cool in nearly all shots, but surely that's just style over substance, if your story gets muddled and uses all cop thriller clichés in the book.

James Macavoy is always one to watch, but here he seems a little too weedy to be a hardened vengeful cop, sometimes resembling a spoilt teenager having a tantrum, perhaps an older actor may have lent more weight to what amounts to a role of a burnt out cop on the edge.

Mark Strong as the career criminal he faces off against fares much better giving his villain a mix of real menace and a softer human side, that creates a believably flawed character, whose life of crime has resulted in his sons death, setting up the plot for cop and criminal to come on a collision course.

In terms of story and style the look is a mixture of John Woo (the gun shoot outs) and the director must surly have been influenced by Michael Mann (Heat, Miami Vice) to some point.

The action scenes (mostly gun shoot outs) are well done, stylish and like the rest of the film slick.

So in short not a bad film, looks good, some good scenes, with the odd twist, good cast, but let down by a generic cop verses criminal plot that's been done slightly better elsewhere in dozens of better thrillers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Water on the knee... 17 Nov 2013
Former criminal Jacob Sternwood is forced to return to London from his hideaway when his son is involved in a heist gone wrong.

This gives detective Max Lewinsky one last chance to perfect his strong man accent, and catch the man he has always been after.

As they face off, they uncover a deeper conspiracy, and deeper voice, they both need to solve in order to survive.....

I knew when I saw the posters to this having 'Executive Producer Ridley Scott' standing out on them, I knew this was going to be as generic as an eighties straight to video gem.

But I wanted to be wrong, Mark Strong is great in anything, and McAvoy is just as watchable. So what do you get? Strong being as great as he can be, McAvoy being a really unconvincing moody bobby, and London, looking the best it ever has.

And that's the movie. The leads chasing one another, while something fishy goes on above their heads, but you know David Morrissey is involved because he's one of the most famous people in it, but hardly at all, and looks serious all along.

The support is stellar, and on paper, this probably looked like something special.

On celluloid, its all style and no substance, nothing really special at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars The British Actioner! 25 April 2013
When all the powerhouses amalgamate together in the last half hour the inconsistencies and contrivances in the plot before it are somewhat forgiven as this is stylish, ambitious stuff with some cracking action and a contender for scene of the year which, without giving too much away, contains slow-mo bullets and grannies!
Its all very familiar and even though each and every shot is refreshingly cinematic for a London-based movie, the set-up here is one that has been conventional fare in Hollywood for decades: two men on opposite sides of the law forming a mutual respect for each other. But as the story unravels into an intriguing spectacle, this film becomes more than just a typical catch-me-if-you-can actioner.
Strong is on top form in particular and although some may argue this isn't as good as it thinks it is, it is a remarkable effort for an 'action cop thriller made in the U.K.' and it Gets better as it zips along although with no real substance. Think The Bill meets Infernal Affairs/The Departed and your somewhere close. The saying 'great Saturday night entertainment' is branded about far too often but this would be right up there as a prime example

4.0 out of 5 stars 'THERE'S A SCORE TO SETTLE' 28 Aug 2013
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Finding and arresting 'Jacob Shernwood' has become an obsession for cop
'Max Lewinsky' after 10 years of biding his time.
When 'Jacob's' son, is badly injured and arrested, 'Max' knows the villain he's
waited for all these years, will surely return to the U.K to see his son.
As their paths collide a network of corruption surfaces,
Director 'Ridley Scott' usually deliver's....however the film in truth does take a while
to get going, when it does, it becomes an action-packed gem.
Good 'Brit' movie, well worth a viewing.

1.0 out of 5 stars London by Tw@light 4 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Set in London - it looks like Docklands; it could be anywhere - I have lived in London for over 40 years and did not recognise a single location as the movie is filmed in a `steel blue/grey' colour filter. I presume this was to `art-house' and make up for the lack of content.
The lead actor James McAvoy plays a wimp who lacks any conviction as the lead actor. In fact the casting is poor as is the acting. The whole deal is saved by the excellent Mark Strong who should have been given the lead role or rather be in a better movie.
The story is about nothing other than gun-running - how original.
I will end the review here and state that in my opinion the movie was utter rubbish. One star is too much - a complete waste of my money.
