In London Boulevard he carries the opposite to the Phonebooth guy as a streetwise guy with a solid moral compass, but with huge balls of steel that he has to eventually show to Ray Winstone's psychopathic and ruthless crime boss, when Winstone fancies pushing him around.
Keira Knightley as usual doesn't do a lot, Atonement for me was her finest hour but apart from then I have never found her to be convincing. I think she is widely fancied, though not by me (too skinny and not all that pretty) so gets starring roles in things and doesn't pull them off.
I'm not sure if the ending is supposed to be a major twist, but it's just a mild surprise and a highly ineffective one. Farrell, Winstone and David Thewlis carry it well enough. The cameos by Sanjeev Bhaskar, Anna Friel and Eddie Marsan add quite a bit and the film might have benefited from more development of their characters.
So there's far worse gangster films out there if you ask me,but then i'm not a gangster film fan,i just enjoyed this for what it was,good but nothing special.
From a former screenwriter who made excellent stuff like The Departed and Edge of Darkness, a not so well scripted film
