Review

"Ace reggae soundtrack assembled by supervisor Adrian Sherwood" -- Variety, Tue., Mar. 14, 2006

Product Description

Johnny (Vinnie Jones), trying to escape a violent past, hides out in the world's least-safe safe house, sandwiched between a crime den run by a Jamaican gangster (Eriq LaSalle) and a pirate radio station belonging to a Rasta DJ (Lennox Lewis). When Johnny's former comrade (Patrick Bergin) escapes from prison, Johnny faces being dragged back into violence and away from his new love (Samantha Mumba). Johnny's actions ignite a simmering war on two fronts with his drug-dealing neighbor and his former boss Jimmy (Roger Daltrey). Johnny faces questions of race, morality, loyalty, and ultimately survival--played out against a great reggae sound track from legendary DJ-producer Adrian Sherwood.

5.0 out of 5 stars great British Gangster movie September 1, 2006
By B. Katz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you like British Gangster movies, this one wont let you down. It's got a GREAT cast. Roger Daltrey from the Who even does a small part, as does Eriq La Salle from ER and Vinnie Jones from SNATCH and LOCK STOCK. Solid reggae throughout, lots of action seens, a few amazing car chases through europe a la Ronin... I'd rent it again on a rainy night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Was July 6, 2011
Format:DVD
I enjoyed this film a lot and would recommend it to anyone, the story was put together very well, and the characters are great. I am a big Vinnie Jones fan and this was by far one of his best performances. He and Samantha Mumba had great chemistry and worked very well off each other. I do have to admit Patrick Bergen was the scene stealer. I really enjoyed this movie. Great story, Great characters, and Great action you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great brit crime flick September 1, 2006
Format:DVD
But this one has a different spin to it. This film shows the seedy underbelly of London like most of those hi gloss ones don't. And while Layer Cake, Lock Stock, etc. are great this film has an authenticity and feel that the others cant match. I dont know how the director got such good chemistry from this diverse cast, but all I can say is.....hats off. This is an exciting but thought provoking action/crime flick I would recommend to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Jaunty Ride November 21, 2008
Format:DVD
I just saw this movie the other day and really enjoyed it. Johnny Was is not great cinema, but it definitely entertains. I like Vinnie Jones in just about everything so it was an easy rental for me. Really though, Patrick Bergin is the film's highlight. His Flynn was the catalyst for most of the action and his one liners are a riot. I also appreciated the Jamaican Yardie angle and thought that Lennox Lewis put in an acceptable performance. Johnny Was was fun and the historical ties made it a little more interesting than it otherwise would have been.

5.0 out of 5 stars "If a man ain't got no roots he don't have no future." October 4, 2006
Format:DVD
Simply Awesome! Vinnie Jones delivered his best performance as Johnny Doyle a man struggling to get away from his past. He is absolutely convincing as a troubled former bombmaker with a conscience. I'm really starting to become a fan of his work ever since I saw him in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Their was an interesting parallel that was drawn between the forces of Irish terrorists and that of the local neighborhood druglord, Julius. Lennox Lewis' role as Ras, a Rastafarian radio DJ adds depth to the story. He has a "zen" presence that complements Eriq La Salle's character who is simply after one thing: money. The dialog was brilliant; chock full of dozens of quotable lines. I highly recommend this to anybody that enjoyed Snatch or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
