A very awesome Long Good Friday!

According to many, The Long Good Friday has been called the best British gangster film of all time as well as one of the best British films! Now after watching it, I am not surprised at all!

I do have to say that it is a very underrated film that I feel should have earned more credit than it received (not so much the critics but... read more

Since this movie is considered a classic, arguably the best British gangster flick ever made, I was really eager to check it out. To be honest, I had a rather hard time to get into the whole thing though. I mean, the first 10 minutes were almost impossible to follow and then the rest of the movie was still rather hard to decipher. I mean, even the characters had no clue about what was going on and... read more

The Long Good Friday

I’m going to throw a word around that I don’t tend to do much: overrated. I think The Long Good Friday is an overrated British gangster film on the whole, but in the tiny details it does do some unique things and is blessed to have Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren as the leads. When the film begins to get cumbersome, Hoskins and Mirren are there to work tiny miracles and save it.

"20/5 This reminded me a bit of Calibre 9 by Fernando Di Leo with the mystery-plot featuring gangsters, and the opening sequence was somewhat similar as well, though obviously it wasn't that all out there - the opening, that is (just an observation. That kind of loud and trashy-thing wouldn't have worked in this, and besides, I liked this film in whole way more). It was kind of fun seeing Bob Hoskins doing that over the top, pompous gangster-thing, the music was tight and I really liked the fina"
