Trivia

In her 2008 autobiography "In the Frame: My Life in Words and Pictures", Helen Mirren claims that it was at her insistence that her character "Victoria" was made into a more complex character than just the stereotypical mob moll. See more »

Goofs

In the last scene of the movie, Bob Hoskins gets into the left rear passenger seat of the car. When Pierce Brosnan pops up from the front passenger seat, he looks toward the vacant right rear passenger seat pointing his gun in that direction rather than at Hoskins. He continues looking in the wrong direction for the entire scene. See more »

Bob Hoskins makes this...
21 May 2001 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Very much in the tradition of the American gangster films of the 30s and 40s, this movie centres around a bravura performance by the central gangster (Edward G Robinson/James Cagney then; Bob Hoskins now). Bob Hoskins raves and fights against a world that is rapidly moving beyond his control and, although he is an unpleasant, violent and vicious character, you end up caring for him.

Interesting also as a historical snapshot of a period in London's history (the redevelopment of the Docklands) now gone.
