The first few scenes had such unfortunate musical choices that I nearly stopped watching, but I'm glad I saw it through.
It was a cute premise, and a good film for those who like crime films.

This production is slick, but it has very little depth. We have all seen some variation of this movie before: a bunch of lowlifes, who may be wearing expensive threads, covet big stacks of money. All of them have the morality of the proverbial alley cat. This version is set in the seedy underworld of an English seaside city.

A common theme runs through it all: we get to know a character fairly well, for the acting is solid. Then the character gets "popped" at close range or weighed down (in one case, with a car wheel that he is forced to carry) and tossed off the pier.

It's all backed by an effective soundtrack that underscores a spirit of decadence and doom. The cinematography is sound; there are some spectacular shots.

The british always have a cool way of doing Lundun villains with assorted wise-cracks of the saucy bastard type. Hard Boiled Sweets started out with alot of promise when it laid the ground-work by introducing a mix of colourful characters. It was amusing to hear them nick-named after a different candy. Incase you americans didn't know - the english word for candy is sweets.
A visting king-pin is visting a sea-side resort to pick up his share of earning from the various gambling and whoring racket run by the local mob, who reckon they want to kill him and take his spoils instead. The spice to the plot is they got the same idea at different times. So the film takes some unpredictable turns. But in the last 1/4, , the film becomes diluted and and unlikely. It was light-fare to begin with, which was amusing as a yarn, but the film could not survive a dose of the unlikelies well. Villains need their integrity. So it ends up as 3 star. The screen-play and plot failed to take up a line-up of promising characters and do something with them. Shame. Still amusing to follow for first 3/4 way through though.
