A very enjoyable movie altogether, although not as lighthearted as the trailer makes it appear. The opening part of the story takes place against a pretty bleak background of social dysfunction. One feels as if the supporting characters could have been drawn out a bit more, although they contribute some very funny moments. Once the heist conceit of the movie goes into action, things are a bit too easy. A much lighter turn than Loach's "The Wind That Shakes The Barley", and here's hoping he makes more of that caliber. But all in all, a charming and fun film, well-shot and acted. The subtitles will be welcome to those unaccustomed to the accents of the North.

Great story of ingenuity and determination to overcome the hard streets of Glasgow with the help of Scotland's greatest discovery, Malt Scotch Whiskey. Add to that the unique Scottish humor and street slang and if your a Scot from Glasgow it is a treat!

I enjoyed following the protagonist in this film through an emotional transformation as he matures from being a street thug to finding his way as a new father. He is joined on his journey by an eclectic group of misfits he met while doing court ordered community service. The quirky characters offer many humorous moments in the story. Juxtaposed against the wealthy society scotch whiskey collectors, we see our protagonist struggle to better himself. As he and his friends are from the streets of Glasglow, the accents are strong at times.

Angel's share is a fun movie with an edge.

Very typically Scots dry sense of humor.

If you are a Whiskey fan and a fan of quirky characters then you will enjoy this movie.

HAVING BEEN BORN AND RAISED FOR THE FIRST 21 YEARS OF MY LIFE IN EDINBURGH, THIS FILM WAS DELIGHTFUL, INSIGHTFUL AND HYSTERICAL.
