Editorial Reviews

Longtime crime boss Ged Brennan (Scot Williams, Backbeat) has had enough of the increasingly brutal criminal underworld. But to fund a legitimate business, he's got to rely on his crew to successfully pull off one final robbery. When his boys have plans of their own and the heist goes horribly wrong, gang warfare erupts. With betrayal all around him, Ged must rely on his former adversary, ruthless tough guy Franner (Stephen Graham, Public Enemies), and use everything he's learned from more than two decades in the world of vice to survive in this pulse-pounding thriller.

    Some of The Crew is very entertaining and even quite darkly funny, but those joys were oft undercut for me by too many scenes with gratuitously nasty violence. Williams is quite good throughout, as are most of the actors, but director Vitoria delights a little too much in shocking us, so that by the end I was rather numbed by it all and couldn't feel anything when yet more bad guys bit the dust, or the barrel of a gun.

    The soundtrack is very good, and some of the shots are very good, and some of the acting is very good, and much of the script is very good. But Vitoria's delight in nastiness for its own sake soured me after a while, and I liked this a lot less than I might have if he'd been a bit less ham-handed with the brutality. Yes, it's realistic, but so is a man sitting on a toilet, and we don't often see that as it's not very entertaining. I feel the same about torture scenes and other graphic edginess, but perhaps that's just me.

    I almost loved this one, and it does have many merits, but in the end I was pushed away.

    Some good extras on the dvd for fans, though. But the documentarian keeps asking the principals what the moral of it all is, and their inability to answer sort of sums up my uneasiness about The Crew: much sound and fury signifying...much sound and fury.

    THE CREW, at times, feels like a cross between THE DEPARTED and THE GODFATHER series - which is fine. What you have are rival factions competing for control of the illicit activity that has been going on for the many years that comprises their (under)world. A key leader named Ged (played very well by Scot Williams) has had enough and wants out. But extricating oneself from such a sordid situation is easier said than done. Others are not so willing to suddenly turn their backs on a potentially lucrative opportunity. There is a vacuum to be filled at any cost and Ged's departure opens up many possibilities. His brother, appropriately nicknamed "Ratter" (who may be adopted, or a half-brother, or a full brother) is indeed aptly named and wants to take over his brother's position no matter what it takes. Kenny Doughty, in another fine performance, along with his partner/friend "Hom" (it's not absolutely clear what his nickname stands for though the implication seems to point to his sexual orientation) plays the part of Ged's unhappy "brother". The backdrop for all of the action that takes place is the seedy side of Liverpool back in 2007-08 which reinforces the dark ambience of this film. The murder of a criminal named "The Pig" early in the film also serves as a key catalyst and back story for what is to come. Without giving anything away (no "Spoilers" here), the main story begins to unfold at a very rapid pace after a slow but necessary build up. Loyalties are tested and reaffirmed; betrayal rears its ugly head and is dealt with accordingly; double crossing is presented almost as an art form but is also necessary at times. One final job (there is always "one final job") before Ged "retires" is planned.Read more ›

    Honestly the film is not that great, but the overall package contents and Blu clarity give it a higher rating. Main consideration point would be to disqualify the cover art/pics as the gun play/action being depicted never really happens that much.

    The story follows a Brit organized crime group as they muddle through hijacking trucks, dealing, and other assorted criminal dysfunctions to support their families. A few subplots get thrown in covering inter-gang power struggles, a money swindling operation against the head of the crime group and some airing of family laundry. The Blu clarity is outstanding and the sound is a decent DTS. The best color test is at the 91 minute mark with that greenery landscape. The audible is clear enough, but the slang and accents are so heavy I had to turn on the subtitles. Some of the conversation is so fast paced even the sub translators missed a few things. The supplements give this package the extra bump.

    * 30 minute making-of. Heavy with interviews, but this one is a little different as they are playing rough cuts and behind the scenes footage simultaneously (behind the actors) as the stars/crew give their take on the film.
    * 6 minute montage on the 25 days of filming. Continuous music over snippets from film making and location showings.
    * Deleted scenes. 13 cuts totaling 20 minutes. Gives a slightly different ending version plus numerous scenes that were better left out (would have drug the pace even more).
    * Commentary by cast and crew. Similar to the interviews from the main supplement.

    A well preserved film on a competent Blu, just do not expect the action they keep trying to sell it with. 3.5 for the film, 1.5 for the extras and Blu quality. Be sure to read the reasons for the R rating - definitely some disturbing scenes/themes.

    I found this British 2008 crime film watchable, but in its second half it disappointed me a little. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

    Gerard "Ged" Brennan (Scot Williams) is a rather succesful gang boss, heading a "crew" of a dozen hardened criminals, specialized particularly in hijacking trucks with valuable goods. Amongst the most significant members of his "crew" are his younger brother Ratter (Kenny Doughty) and a gigantic heavy named Moby (Rory McCann, of "Game of Thrones" fame). "Ged" Brennan is respected by his fellow mobsters and he is particularly good friends with the local big boss, Franner (Stephen Graham) - but he always refused to get involved into drug trafficking, aware of high risks involved.

    When this film begins, "Ged" Brennan is living a particularly difficult moment in his life: his last "job" turned badly, one of his mob friends Leo "The Pig" Murphy was found murdered, his marriage is in trouble, he has a cash flow problem, which can jeopardize his participation in a highly profitable (and perfectly legal) land deal, his right hand Moby gets into a ton of trouble because of his sexoholism and as if all that was not enough, his younger brother approaches him with a completely unexpected and shocking proposition...

    What follows is for most of the time a rather honest crime film, which I mostly enjoyed, excepted for some quasi-pornographic and rather disgusting scenes (I am not talking here about the rather harmless little scene of girl-on-girl action). Twenty five minutes before the end, everything was in place for a very dramatic and powerful great finale.

    Sadly, at that moment the director decided to go all "Deus ex machina" and the last twenty five minutes are really a whimper rather than a bang.
