This review is from: A Prayer For The Dying [DVD] (DVD)
This is an amazing film about a bad man looking for redemption in a world where his beliefs have turned him into a spiritually bereft monster. Rourke is at the peak of his powers here and still has his looks before his ill advised foray into the world of professional boxing. Bob Hoskins embellishes his repution as east London hard knock by playing ex special forces vicar dishing out beatings to all and sundry with typical aplomb.
A star studded cast makes this a film that will not lie down and die along with many of its 80's contemporaries.
