Already 2 years ago, Steven Soderbergh decided to retire which was too bad. I mean, it could have been nice if he could slow down a bit (he basically made 15 movies in 15 years before his retirement) but, to completely stop, that was rather extreme. Anyway,  this movie was actually made at a pivotal point in Soderbergh's career. Indeed, so far, he had been making some rather obscure and bairly se... read more

I found this difficult to watch and if it wasn't on so late I still wouldn't have wanted to watch the whole thing. It was nauseating because the time line was all over the place. Not that it was hard to follow but it gets a bit much when it's jumping from present to past to future and to any one of those again for no real reason, even being in present tense while jumping to past and present, then ... read more

" An extremely volatile and dangerous Englishman goes to Los Angeles to find the man he considers responsible for his daughter's death. A throwback to films from the 60’s and 70’s, critics loved the movie and Terrance Stamp and Peter Fonda, too."

"Middle of the road for Soderbergh and one of Terrence Stamps best performances. It could have been a pretty cool 90 LA film but falls just short. "

30 From 99: My Favorite Films From 1999 (30 movies items)

"To be honest, at first glance, The Limey doesn't seem like it was too far off from just being a typical crime film of this variety. However, with Steve Soderbergh in the director's chair, Terence Stamp in the zone as the lead and Peter Fonda who plays the antagonist with an evil that shows itself on the surface as only as a laser-like sliver, there's is enough in this movie to raise it just above the heap of the average revenge thriller.

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: July (26 movies items)

"July 11 "Do you understand half the shit he says?" "No, but I know what he means." I've went on how I'm not a fan of Steven Soderbergh's work before, but for whatever reason I keep going into his movies hoping they're good.

It also had an interesting style of editin"
