"Dave Calhoun writes a lengthy review here in an attempt to justify his one-star rating. But the reality is that with this fiilm the whole is more enjoyable than the sum of its parts . . .. Farrell, Knightly, Winstone and Thewlis have all been in better films, but they still give good value in this moody gangster thriller . .. . . There's a terrific scene in a posh restaurant where Farrell's character spells out why he could not possibly entertain a liaison with the Winstone's ruthless gangland overlord .. . . .Unfortunately the film tries to handle too many themes and falls between several stools . .. enabling critics to compare the film pejoratively with iconic films such as Performance and Layer Cake. Verdict: Flawed . . - but worth seeing."
