Best British film ever ever ever,
This review is from: The Long Good Friday (Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
First saw this film over 20 years ago. Still as good now as it was then, if not better because of its 80's realism. Hoskins plays the lead with pace and panache which moves the film along at tremondous speed. The brutality is not out of place yet in places it softness balances this out. Some critics have said the music score is dated, but can you really have a film from 1981 without a synth. Watch and enjoy.
