Tom Hardy is the reason to watch this Brooklyn crime drama, the English-language debut of Belgian director Michaël R Roskam (‘Bullhead’). Mostly set in a dark Irish pub and based on a Dennis Lehane short story, ‘The Drop’ focuses on a trio of working-class characters shivering through one chilly January. Hardy is Bob, a simple guy who works behind the bar. Behind him sits Marv (James Gandolfini), the gruff owner who knows that, on some nights, his place becomes a laundry for dirty money. Noomi Rapace is a waitress who warily lets Bob into her life after he finds a puppy in her rubbish bin.

Adorable as that dog is, it can’t bear the symbolic weight thrust on it: a fragile thing with fearsome potential. That’s the whole of this dingy-looking film in shorthand. As the bar is robbed by the pooch’s original owner (Matthias Schoenaerts), then targeted for a bigger sting, you wait for ominous clouds to fulminate. They never quite do. Until the movie’s showdown, ‘The Drop’ ambles along, less a simmering pot than a cooling one. J

critique _
1 of 1 found helpful

Rothkopf`s hastily scrapped-together "review" not only does this excellent crime drama a grave injustice, it is factually inaccurate and suggests the "critic" failed to pay proper attention (Schoenaerts` character never robs the bar). This is superbly written and acted, replete with memorable dialogue, satisfying twists and turns and immense performances from Tom Hardy and the late, great James Gandolfini.

Yes, critique _ is right that Joshua just wasn't paying attention and confused his characters, although he is right to pick out Tom Hardy who delivers yet another fantastic performance after Locke and of course Bane. To see Hardy and Gandolfini (RIP) together, the careful pace of the story, restrained menace and simple backdrops lets these magnificent actors deliver a gripping drama.
