    Ruthless, stylish, suspenseful, cool. It still crackles with a fiery energy every time I watch it and it's great for a bit of fun when you're in the mood for something short, sweet and to-the-point.

    Ben Kingsley is freaking amazing in this movie. I'm not quite sure this movie would be as good without Ben Kingsley. It really doesn't seem like anything happens in the movie and the pacing can be a bit slow, but Ben Kingsley's role makes up for all that. I was actually a little bit scared of his character while watching this movie. I would probably give the movie…

    One of the best films ever made. Intense, very funny and very intelligent. It's the perfect script and dialogue accompanied by some amazing a stylish filming techniques. Ben Kingsley is at his career best here I think, he should have won the Oscar for best supporting actor. Outstanding. This is a film-school rolled into about 88 mins that can teach you all about pacing, writing, acting, directing and cinematography. My highest recommendation.

    100% show-stealing by Sir Ben.

    Fuck Danny Baldwin. Kingsley took him to fuckin' acting school.

    Ian. McShane. This is a whole 'nother trip now that I've seen Deadwood.

    Still great. Still unnerving.

    'If there's a will and there is a fucking will, there's a way.'

    I give this film the Oscar for tannest Winston!

    Also, it just fucking kicks ass...style, script, the sheer force of Kingsley! It has everything you need to knock your block off!

    A wonderfully idiosyncratic and low-key gangster film from Jonathan Glazer with some menacing performances.

    Guess I'm the only one who found McShane more menacing than Kingsley.

    Another movie its lucky I really enjoy its dark humour as I have to listen to my boyfriend quoting the legend that is Ben Kingsley.

    The best gangster thriller I've ever seen. Jonathan Glazer, please don't take another ten years to drop a movie.

    I find myself, at least every other day, thinking about this movie in some way or some line, particularly Kingsley.
