Blu-ray Review: Hard Boiled Sweets

Hard Boiled Sweets

Stars: Philip Barantini, Elizabeth Berrington, Adrian Bower, Paul Freeman, Liz May Brice, Laura Greenwood | Written and Directed by David L.G. Hughes

Guy Ritchie has a lot to answer for. Following the success of his British gangster flick Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels we’ve had a myriad of rip-offs and wannabes of which Hard Boiled Sweets is one. Taking inspiration from Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction and Guy Ritchie’s aforementioned gangster flick, the film weaves together a number of different stories and characters into this tale of seaside gangsters – the trouble is right from the get-go you know exactly where the film is headed and how all the plot threads will come together; watching everything pan out as you’ve already guessed makes for very dull viewing!

The film follows mob boss ‘Shrewd’ Eddie (Freeman), a Southend-on-Sea gangster who is used to getting whatever he wants; he runs the town, »

Hard Boiled Sweets Blu-Ray Review

25 April 2012 1:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: David L.G Hughes

Starring: Paul Freeman, Peter Wight, Ty Glaser, Nathaniel Martello-White

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 84 minutes approx

Extras: Pick n’ Mix: The Making Of Hard Boiled Sweets, Deleted Scenes, A Girl And A Sweet Documentary, A Girl And A Gun short

British gangster films are ten-a-penny; since Guy Ritchie burst onto the scene with Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998) there have been a truly hideous amount of films that have tried to give us something new, and few have been as successful as Ritchie’s debut. Hard Boiled Sweets (2011) is David L.G Hughes attempt at freshening up the genre, utilising Ritchie’s multi-character, multi-story structure.

Hard Boiled Sweets sets out its stall early on, beginning with an old-school boss, Jimmy ‘The Gent’ (Wight), being threatened by Leroy (Danny Sapani), ‘the new boss’, and Jermaine (Martello-White), the second in command, for monies owed. One of the debtors, »

22 March 2012 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Hard Boiled Sweets is hitting DVD and Blu-ray 30th April. It has a great cast which includes Philip Barantini, Elizabeth Berrington, Adrian Bower, Liz May Brice, Paul Freeman and Ty Glaser. In this exclusive clip from the movie, we get to see a particularly nasty Paul Freeman (who i will always knows as Dr. René Belloq from Raiders of the Lost Arc) enforcing his authority!

Mob Boss, ‘Shrewd’ Eddie – ‘The Gobstopper’ (Paul Freeman; Hot Fuzz, Raiders of the Lost Ark) is used to getting whatever he wants;  he runs Southend, gets all the best women including the gorgeous, sought-after Porsche – ‘The Sherbet Lemon’ (Ty Glaser; Secret Diary of a Call Girl), and has one million pounds in dirty cash stashed in a briefcase at his home.  However, nothing in this world comes without a price, and this weekend his boss and top-dog London Mobster, Jimmy The Gent (Peter Wight; My Week With Marilyn, »

This week's new films

9 March 2012 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

John Carter (12A)

(Andrew Stanton, 2012, Us) Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Mark Strong, Dominic West, Samantha Morton, Ciarán Hinds. 132 mins

Despite the technological might of Pixar, this Martian epic still feels closer to retro fare such as Flash Gordon or Dune. It's a cumbersome hero's journey fully of silly names, skimpy costumes and princesses in peril – stuff we've seen recycled so many times since Edgar Rice Burroughs first wrote this, it now feels laughably quaint. Still, it's always fun to see an expensively rendered alien world, even if cheesy myth-making comes with the territory.

Trishna (15)

(Michael Winterbottom, 2011, UK) Freida Pinto, Riz Ahmed, Roshan Seth. 113 mins

Hardy's Tess looks a comfortable fit with modern-day India in this naturalistic drama, which takes liberties with the text but finds new resonances, as Pinto's subdued villager struggles to find happiness with a wealthy young British-Indian.

The Raven (15)

(James McTeigue, 2012, Us) John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans. »
