Gangster Gary Dove (Ray Winstone) has now retired to a villa on the Costa Del Sol, where he lives with ex-porn star wife DeeDee (Amanda Redman) and spends his time lazing by the pool and dining out with friends. All is well until Gary's psychotic former colleague Dan Logan (Ben Kingsley) arrives in Spain, determined to persuade him to do one last job. Dan is now in the employ of London crime kingpin Teddy Bass (Ian McShane), who intends to rob the bank of his sometime lover Harry (James Fox). Gary maintains that he has turned his back on his criminal past, but Dan is not prepared to take no for an answer...
Fed up with the seemingly endless succession of Brit gangster flicks? Or just wish that someone would reinvent the genre? Either way, Sexy Beast is for you. While reintroducing some of the well-worn characters of recent years, the film at least attempts to take a sideways look at the genre. Centred on the lives of two ex-con ex-pats and their new lives in Spain, the story is one concerning the conflict between the past and the present. Ray Winston is Gel, who, enjoying his life of early retirement in the sun, finds his loyalties called into question when asked to return to Britain to take part in an audacious heist. There's not much else to say plot wise, but the script and cast is so strong that the film gets away with it. Eschewing the younger brat pack in favour of the likes of Winston, Ian McShane, Amanda Redman (sadly under-used) and Ben Kingsley (whose ultra foul-mouthed Don steals every scene) gives the film a calm authority. Quite violent--although more in language than action--but not without its moments of brilliant humour, Sexy Beast is an intelligent, enthralling and welcome addition to the gangster-film genre. --Phil UdellSee all Product description

This film is different from the average gangster film, as it looks at the life of a 1980s British gangster Winstone who's gone into retirement in
Spain. When a former contact comes over from the UK, it causes a tense and uncomfortable atmosphere unsetting Winstone's comfortable
Gary Dove (Ray Winstone) is blissfully retired, living in a Spanish villa paradise with the wife he adores. His perfect lifestyle is shattered by the arrival of his gangster nemesis Don Logan (Ben Kingsley), intent on persuading him to return to London for a big heist. Desperate not to sacrifice his carefully built idyll, Dove is drawn into a shocking battle of wills with Logan, ending in an explosive psychological showdown, and a sensational underwater bank robbery in which he must risk everything to protect the woman he loves..
WHAT CAN I SAY? This could be the most under rated movie of all time, the performances by Ray Winstane Amanda Redman, Ian Macshane and Ben Kingsley is amazing!!!!! Always keeps you on the edge of your seat .Ben Kinsleys portrayel of a psychopath blew me away.!!!
The socio-path Kinsleys play is "Don Logan," is unbelievably intense and almost has my jaw dropping when watching him in this film.
This is so "Intense"!! that I can not even begin to describing this guy.It's so impressive that all actors ((Ray Winstane Amanda Redman Julianne White)) don't look like they're acting you could see all the fear on everyone faces it is so so real...believe me HE is One of the scariest bad guys ever(((WOW)))this portrayal of gangster Don Logan is destined to go down as one of the most memorable mobsters in film history ,its up there with the best of all the big mobsters this is Hannibal Lechter of all villains Kingsley's is that good and more.This is Bad Ben's finest hour!.
By the way this film has a( Devil Rabbit) THIS FILM WAS MADE IN 2000 AND this is one year before (Donnie Darcko which was made in 2001.?? now you know where the had big Rabbit from (((you F#$@in thief's that's what Ray Winstone would say)))..I cannot praise this film enough,its cool, its scary, its stylish. Not your typical gangster film but it has created a new genre of gangster film.
It is Just Simply Amazing...
AND ONE HELL OFF A BEAST.YOU COULD SAY THIS ONE IS A VERY "SEXY BEAST"
When I returned home I looked on Amazon, read some of the reviews, and sent for it.
Well what can I say, both my wife and I were blown away with this movie, all of the cast were great, Winstone on top form, but not playing his usual type of role, Sorry Ray, but Sir Ben Kingsley was the star of this movie. I doubt you'll ever come across such a convincing, and terrifying psychopathic character, truly awesome acting. If you have not seen it, do not delay, I put this up with many of my favorite movies, Goodfellas, Jacobs ladder, Memento, so great was it, we watched again the following evening.
