    The Long Good Friday

    ★★★★

    "Right lads, it's your decision. Frostbite or verbals, one of the two, right?"

    I really like these kind of movies, movies that throws you right in the mix. The confidence displayed in the execution of the setup is really assuring.

Instead we have alien invasion, a world united against the threat of eradication. But even in those movies, the general reaction was that of reserved welcome (which always turned out to be a huge mistake).…
