Brilliant and hard-nosed just as I like 'em. Hardy delivers again along with several others. Anyone having problems with library DVDs try rubbing alcohol as a cleaning agent. Works 90% of the time. So many library discs have been stained with lord knows what !

The copy of this DVD that I received was so scratched that I was unable to watch the second half of the movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed this film! It was well thought out and superbly acted. I liked the pace which allowed for many great subtleties which could be missed by some. Well worth my time and I would watch it more than once. If you didn't get the subtleties you might miss the greatness of this film which didn't simply rely on violence and sex but had a great story well told!

Did not watch- March 08, 2017
April 3, 2017 - I picked this up again by accident and spent 3/4 of an hour watching this boring, ridiculous, waste-of-time, "f" word filled movie. Terrible movie.

Tom Hardy can do no wrong. Fantastic actor and a terrific movie playground for us to see his talents. His Brooklyn accent [he is a Londoner] is just about spot on.
The movie is a wee slow at the beginning, but we are introduced by Hardy to the area, the bar, the workings of the bar and some of the characters. Whatever you do,don't drink alcohol watching this..have all your senses alert....pay attention...so much is said in the few lines spoken.
Just a masterpiece of a film. Tom Hardy's and the late James Gandolfini performances are Oscar worthy, but of course, no-one took notice of this small movie. The Academy Award Committee should hang their heads down.
10 out of 10

A tense crime thriller, with Tom Hardy doing a good job.

Good movie. A nice, quieter mob movie for a change. Didn't like the very end when it fades to black as we don't know what really happened. Does anyone know?

I thought to myself at the beginning of the film, "how badly is (London born) Tom Hardy gonna mangle his character's Brooklyn accent?" Well, his accent was slightly odd/off, but I grew accustomed to it and forgot all about it eventually. This tightly wound neo-noir did not disappoint. The writing and the cast were superb.

Gandolfini really got into the role and packed on what looks like 50 or more pounds. He smoked incessantly to portray his rough edged rotund alcoholic smoker..unfortunately it seems to have caused some cardiac issues...but great performance to die for.
