Dr Jacques COULARDEAU, Université Paris Dauphine, Université Paris I Panthéon Sorbonne
An enjoyable scene is when Julian having been bundled into the trunck of a car attempts to negotiate a price with Dave and Ray (Robert Carlyle), even though they hold all the cards and may be going to kill him.
What lets this film down the character of Ray, a former left wing activist who has turned to violent crime. There is nothing wrong with Robert Carlyle's performance but the basis of the character is simply not believable. Neither is his girlfirend, a left wing social activist who lives with an armed robber, the ultimate example of free enterprise, it is just not believable.
Also given that these men are violent criminals do we really think that they should get away with the loot?
If the makers of this film had stuck with making a good gangster flic without adding all the social pretension it would have been a better film.

I like this story very much and I have watched it several times. It is different enough to entertain and I enjoy watching it a lot. I like it when the "good" guy wins in the end.Published on June 4, 2012 by Marie Anne Bruce
