Really, really, enjoyed this film. The movie is directed by the debutant director William Monahan of “The Departed”
fame for which he wrote the screenplay. Colin Farrell is back on form; straight forward, tough guy, black comedy.
The film reminds me of the type of filming that made me love ‘In Bruges’. The atmosphere between Farrell and Ray
Winston is pretty intense. I’ve always been a fan of Kiera Knightly from her first movie “Bend it like Beckham”
itself. Although she doesn’t have much to do in the movie she does great in whatever she has. Anna Freil plays a
great role as Farrell’s pain in the ass sister. David Thewlis is great and actually enjoyed seeing a cast made up
of mainly British actors/actresses. I would strongly advise going to see this film. Better than expected. Only
thing I would have changed was a different last minute to the film.
