  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


Quite simply one of the best gangster films ever made. Razor-sharp scipt, top-class acting and brilliant performances from Bob Hoskins as the self-deluding 'master' gangster superbly supported by a vampish Helen Mirren make this a must see experiance. And it's British, with all the action taking place in London. This is the gritty reality end of gangster films and shows modern pretenders how it should be done.
