some may view this as a typical british gangster movie and if that's a turn off don't bother watching it. don't watch it for the supposed romance between kiera knightley and colin farrel. don't watch it because most people seem to hate it. watch it for the difference in language. nothing is a shock in this movie but it's well paced and provides a transport from reality for a little over an hour. isn't that what movies are for?

Brian DePalma was considered a master plagiarist by many. It's with little irony that "London Boulevard" reminds you of DePalma's "Carlito's Way". Director William Monahan also references Martin Scorsese which also ironically Monahan wrote the Oscar winning script for "The Departed" which was a reimagining of the Hong Kong crime thriller "Infernal Affairs". The question you ask yourself is Monahan's effort more than the sum of it's influences? The answer to me is a resounding yes. Similarities to other films cannot be denied but when done right you call it a homage. Monahan introduces enough unique fluorishes and twists to elevate it above mere copycat status. Colin Farrell is magnetic and macho as the recently released con who wants to go straight in a world that keeps pulling him into a life of crime. Ray Winstone adds another indelible portrait to his personal rogues gallery as a sadistic crime boss. David Thewlis nearly steals the show as the foppish manager of Keira Knightley's papparazzi stalked movie starlet. The film kept me rapt and invigorated throughout. For those who would dismiss "London Boulevard" as derivative I ask you to consider Bogart, Cagney, and Edward G. They were gangster archetypes who didn't play the same character twice. "London Boulevard" is a variation of the British gangster tradition that includes "Get Carter", "The Long Good Friday", "Mona Lisa" and "Sexy Beast'.

Great start. And then they changed the original in major ways. Some great bad guys. Strong and gritty performances. Colin's character is a gem. If only they stayed with the story.

Very violent. Great acting. Well concieved story line. Very violent. Liked the cinematogrophy. The filming had a very real feeling for me, watching it anyway. Having never been a gangster I feel that this movie captures what I imagine life might be like for a gangster who hits the edge. Very violent. Shocking plot twists keep you on your toes the whole way through, and yet there are many gentle scenes that depict a tender relationship between the main character and his protective charge. Very violent. Liked it alot.

I don't want to give anything away. So lets just say, the acting was just amazing as you would expect. The writing was a bit inconsistent which made the main character (Farrell) look a bit confused at times as to his future. Just as I thought I had a handle on how the character was, rough, gangster type trying to figure out what he wants out of life and his direction, things change again. No issues so far really at this point in the movie I would say. But there were to many subplots and then there were just things that Colin Farrell's Character in my opinion would not have done. Some of this movie, or much of this movie you can figure out as you go along. Nothing wrong with that. I only wish to be entertained. Knightly is just amazing and she plays her character to perfection, an Actress who is described in the movie as a "Howard Hughes Type". The two just work and click perfectly. But as one review in here said, don't watch it for a love story, or the idea you cant figure out how the movie is going during most of it. Watch it for the value of the entertainment of it. If you approach it from that point of view, you will really enjoy it. This is not a feel good movie, as it gives you hope at times, then takes dark turns, only to bring you back again. A real treat, and although not a lot of screen time, you do feel as though he had much more just due to his brilliance performance as a crude, and nasty crime boss, the man himself, Ray Winstone. This is a who's who of actors in my opinion. Winstone was perfect for this role and if memory serves me correctly, The Departed, and Mel Gibson's movie Edge of Darkness he played similar characters although a bit more dark in this movie.Read more ›

Great film! Should go along the lines of Layercake and Drive. Keira Knightley and Farrell are great and the supporting cast is also amazing. If you are a film buff and like "cult or indie" flicks, this is a MUST OWN!

Colin Farrel is superb in one of the best movies I have seen this year and have never heard of!

This movie has good action, acting and is totally unpredictable, which is rare in movies today. Also the soundtrack is fantastic, good classic and emo/brit pop. I would say this is a must see for any Pulp Fiction or overall action movie fan.

I loved this movie. Colin Farrell is a hunk! It was refreshing to see an actor look handsome, his very best! Kiera K. is also lovely, but she needs to put on a few pounds. The acting was great, story fast paced and interesting. Very good movie. I would love another!!
