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.

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.

Looking at the reviews here i'm quite shocked at the rating this has gotten. Sure it isn't the best film in the world but it's actually pretty good! The story is interesting, the cast is great (Anna Friel is AMAZING) this film actually kept me pretty much glued to the screen.
I agree that the ending is shocking but it's hardly implausible like some people have said. This film is wwell worth a watch, give it a try :)

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.

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.

There is good and bad in this film. Some pulp and cool moments, Colin Farrell, a strange nouvelle vague approach with metacinema solutions. But this is also the weakness of the film, that is not entirely enjoyable or totally "independent" and authorial film. So you get stuck in the middle.
From a former screenwriter who made excellent stuff like The Departed and Edge of Darkness, a not so well scripted film

Having been involved with the critically acclaimed Oscar winning film THE DEPARTED (2006), writer turned director William Monahan has gone with trying to recreate a film of that grittiness and taking it to England with LONDON BOULEVARD, the final result being a decent but modest crime thriller. Essentially it is just another film involving crime in London but this time featuring a strong cast including Colin Farrell, Ray Winstone and the always consistent Keira Knightley alongside a foul mouthed script and a brutal narrative.

Recently released convict Mitchell (Colin Farrell) is brought back to his familiar territory in the violent streets of London and straight away is back in business with partner Billy (Ben Chaplin). It is clear that Mitchell wants to steer away from crime and instead be more helpful towards others which comes when he chases a couple of thugs away from a young woman. She ends up meeting him at a party and recommends that he should work for her friend, reclusive film actress Charlotte (Keira Knightley) who has kept herself away from the paparazzi by staying indoors all the time. Mitchell gets the job of protecting her and is supported by another helper Jordan (David Thewlis) in trying to ensure that she isn't intimidated by the press. However away from Charlotte, Mitchell tries to find out who was responsible for the death of his friend, a dosser, and gets Billy to ask round. But when the leading figure in the London underworld, Mr Gant (Ray Winstone) comes looking to place Mitchell high up in his crime organization, he must find a way to refuse the advances of such a dangerous man, while also protecting those closest to him while at the same time growing closer to Charlotte as she seeks a way out.
