I like the movie a lot. Its a very intense thriller, providing a deep atmosphere. People which are searching for action and huge bam bam will be disappointed.
Those people which are searching for intense screenplay, characters and mixed up relationships will find a Tom Hardy trapped in its loyality to his own cousin and his own responsibility and way. Mixed up in those feeling you can see how he is growing in that situtation and what circumstances his once made decision will cause.
Its based on a short story by Denis Lehane... I am a huge fan of him, and I didnt know that before...
Gritty, believable, unpredictable. For fans of crime film and literature, it can hardly be done better than this.
Intense crime drama, it's like the audience is made as clueless as Bob (Tom Hardy) was, wondering which all these events will lead up to. It takes the time for the audience to connect the dots, and remain it as such, however, so some subplots might feel a bit disjointed for a while.
A good movie that could have been great.
