Movie Reviews

Ozus' World Movie Reviews - 7/10 by Dennis SchwartzThe derivative noir film reeks of too much Bogie.
User Review - 8/10 by John DFinney really makes this one work. Frears' tempo becomes stagnant at times, understandable for a relative novice, so thankfully Finney's experience moves the plot along with a fine dollop of sparkle. A commendable debut made all the better by a classy lead player.
User Review - 8/10 by Generoso FA Raymond Chandler movie set against the deprivation of 70's Liverpool, complete with hard boiled dialogue and Bingo - What's not to like? This would be a nice companion piece to Get Carter
User Review - 8/10 by David CA bingo caller/aspiring comedian/would be private-eye (!!) gets caught up in a film-noir conspiracy set in Liverpool at the dawn of the 'seventies. Enjoyable drama, largery carried by Finney's charm. Fulton Mackay scores as a hard man (or is he?) threatening our hero.
User Review - 8/10 by Anthony TWorth a watch. I liked the wit in this film.
User Review - 6/10 by Paul DExcellent offbeat British film in an alternative 'noir' style. It takes a little getting used to because of the juxtapostion of the themes but it a fairly unique piece of cinema.
User Review - 6/10 by Private UStephen Frears' first film - you can see a few hints of his future work here. Uneven first half, but it tightens up after that, and was very funny at the end.
User Review - 6/10 by Lee MA wonderful performance by Finney is wasted in a throwback mystery comedy that never quite comes together nor manages to be very funny.
User Review - 6/10 by Stuart SBlurs the line between spoof and drama. It has some funny moments and great noir style dialogue. Finney is excellent as the bored bingo caller turned private detective. There are politically incorrect moments which are true to the source. However, they come across here as crass and dated whereas in the noir novels I have read they have always come across as social commentary and gritty realism.
User Review - 6/10 by Sean CA good concept that doesn't totally come off, but it's got some witty banter and some nice visuals to spare. I like that Finney's madness is kept a bit ambiguous, but I think that the film would have been better served if it had embraced the noir stylings more. Still, it's interesting to look at the early works of folks like Frears and DP Chris Menges. Was a bit disappointed by Frank Finlay's performance though - way too mundane a role for someone of his calibre.
