A very awesome Long Good Friday!

12 years, 2 months ago at Jul 14 3:52
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!

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

Iโ€™m going to throw a word around that I donโ€™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.

" Notes: To be honest, I had a rather hard time to get into the whole thing. 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 it started to grow thin after a while. Of course, in the last 10-20 minutes, you finally find out what was going on and, in retrospective, it was actually rather obvious. So, in my opinion, even though the plot was entertaining"
