4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, fast paced gangster biopic. Great, 12 April 2010
This review is from: Mesrine - Parts 1 & 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Overall, an excellent film, Cassell, as always, is mesmerising in this role. The story follows the life of Mesrine who is a career criminal, who establishes notoriety through his audacious bank heists and numerous prison breaks. The story is even more enjoyable as it is widely based on true events.

At times, the story can feel a little rushed as there is so much to fit in, for example, large chunks of Mesrine's life seem rushed over where there could have been more development, notably with with reference to the stilted relationsip Mesrine shares with his Father and the women he meets throughout his life.

Nevertheless this is an excellent movie, and highly recommended to those who enjoy well directed stylised gangster movies, Miller's Crossing, Scarface, Carlito's Way...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, tense, harrowing, 12 April 2010
This review is from: Sin Nombre [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Really good movie, a raw depiction of the plight of Mexican migrants trying to enter the US for a better life coupled with the portrayal of the repurcussions of becoming embroiled in the Mara, one of Mexico's most brutal gangs.

Beautifully shot, excellently acted, well recommended to anyone who is fond of similar titles such as City of God

a must see
