3 stars

Slow film, with a noveleque story which flows through a father and gansters life. Entertaining.

One of Soderbergh's best. Stylish and cool, with a great performance from Terence Stamp.

A little overdone on the cockney rhymming slang I think, maybe this would have happened if he was speaking with someone in London, but I think the film pushed it slightly a little too much. Having said that I think Terrance Stamp looked good as a villain and the point of the film as a revenge plot was a great potential for a film, but found the film a bit of an anti-climax VERDICT: Watchable but not brillient
