In my top five all time favourites. This is a great film. Amazing performances by Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley in particular, and a flawless cast generally. Fantastic script. Directed by the brilliant Jonathan Glazer (who also made the Guinness ads among others, including the famous Surfer, my favourite ad of all time) Love it.

One of the better heist films out there with outstanding performances and a wonderful script let down by a lacklustre transfer, such a shame.

Sound quality poor if renting this film, otherwise a style-over-substance gangster flick saved by great performances, especially by Ben Kingsley.

The best way to describe this film is...excellent!If you like crime thrillers this one should rank with the best.The loose boulder rolling down the hill at the beginning of the film acts as a perfect metaphor of Ben Kingsley's menacing character throughout the whole of the plot.Like the boulder that is going to kill you should you stand in it's way,Ben Kingsley is always there to threaten you with extinction!Ray Winstone is also excellent portraying the stereo-typical ex-ciminal who has made it good and wants a peaceful life with his WAG-like wife and family.A funny but frightenly true portrayal of gangster culture.Wonderfully acted and directed...a must see!

Have you ever wanted to erase a film from your memory just so you can enjoy watching it again for the first time? Well that is the case for me and this excellent film from Director Jonathan Glazer whose relatively small back catalogue makes you wish he had made time to produce over the last decade or so.

Sexy Beast is perfectly paced with tight editing and not a wasted scene. Excellent lead and supporting performances are topped off nicely with a narrative that keeps you completely transfixed and an expert 'twist in the tail' leaving you wanting to watch it all over again. The whole film is brilliantly joined together with great cinematography and a well thought out accompanying soundtrack. What more can you ask?

If you haven't seen this film yet, I envy you. If you have seen it already, you will understand.

Ray Winston is great in this but it's ultimately Ben Kingsley that steals the show as the psychotic Dan Logan sent to retrieve him from retirement in Spain for one last bank job. Brilliant.

There is not much to say about this film apart from the fact that its a very entertaining one in good old english ganster manner. Ben kingsley and ray winstone deliver an extraordinary performance and Ian McShane rounds it up as well, after watching this film, you would just believe the persons were real. Exciting, good story, brilliantly delivered in great picture and sound quality !

You would like this film if you liked: snatch, rocknRolla, layer cake, the bank job !
