This is a brilliant British gangster film. Up there with Get Carter,The Long Good Friday et al. It works superbly on all levels. The cast including occasional ham Sir Ben Kingsley are outstanding. Even ex Lovejoy lothario Ian Macshane is pretty good as the metrosexual crime boss Teddy Bass.
Its the best use of a bank job themed film since the original Italian Job.Sexy Beast got a bit lost in the plethora of Brit Gangster flics but it is head and shoulders above them all.The disc has lots of interesting extras. The plot twists and turns,"like a twisty turny thing" and the denoument is sheer class. Buy this film.
