London Boulevard

Colin Farrell stars in this hard-boiled British crime thriller as an ex-con working as a bodyguard for a young actress (Keira Knightley), a gig that re-introduces him to London's gangster underworld.

Mitchel (Farrell) takes the job in hope of a fresh start. But as the star-crossed pair fall in love, they also run afoul of one of London’s most vicious crime bosses (Ray Winstone).

Directorial debut from the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Departed, based on the novel by Ken Bruen.

London Boulevard is like a fancy, retro-styled pocket watch that someone accidentally broke and tried to reassemble with only a vague idea of clockwork.

A befuddling muddle that sees a starry cast up to their necks in reheated clichés.

It's a film with plenty of front, as they say, but uses up all its energy, wit and ideas in the first 20 or so minutes, before collapsing into a flurry of boring violence.

In trying to take a bite out of crime and another out of fame, [Monahan has] ended up with more than he can chew for his first time in the director's chair.

A great cast and an intriguing premise are crowded out by a surplus of plot threads that don't have space to play out, and accordingly come across as clichés.
