The series has an intimacy sometimes lacking from big crime epics as the action really centers on a handful of primary characters over the course of many years. Hardy and Shaun Evans play cousins whose respective partners also happen to be sisters. While not immediate family, per se, they are as close as any brothers. Adapted from Martina Cole's novel, the story (set in the eighties) follows the boys as they ascend to heights of power within the criminal underworld. Hardy is the charismatic and impetuous powder keg, while Evans is the more methodical partner. They are working for an imprisoned crime boss, played by the always reliable Brian Cox, but each has aspirations for something more.Read more ›
Yes, there were some violent moments, but when you watch it, you realize that they could have showed alot more than what they actually did. For instance, why "Jackie" ended up injured at the hospital, and what happened between "Maggie" and "Freddie" could have been shown longer and with more details. So this movie holds back a lot after you watch it...you'll see that. I really really wish it was longer.
Tom Hardy is good, but I hope he doesn't get too big in this industry...that "Hollywood Machine" seems to entice (some people survived better than others) people, then chew them up...and spit them out. After watching this...in my opinion ofcourse...you'll wish the series was longer and with more details. At the very end...you can see that there is a possibility for a continuation...but no. The main character is no longer there and it would not be the same without him. As I said, great movie!!!
