Storyline

Ray runs North London's most powerful criminal gang, and his nephew Jude is a polished and successful member. Jude's boyhood friend Jonny comes to Jude with an idea he wants to pitch to Ray; Jude is reluctant to mix friendship with business (and family), but he does arrange a meeting. Ray takes Jonny on (he uses his job as a courier to steal credit cards), but Jonny soon finds himself bored: the gang is more interested in goofing around and planning Ray's wedding than in fighting, havoc, and mayhem. Jonny wants violence, so he repeatedly tries to start trouble with the South London equivalent of Ray's gang. Will he succeed? If he does, will he find glory in war? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Funny gangster films that does not rely on blood and violence to make it work
23 November 2006 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a man in London getting involved with a group of gangsters.

This film, although is a gangster film, is in fact very funny. There are many subtle jokes and one liners in the film, which does make people laugh. The sets in the film are often simple, but it still looks thoughtfully created. The dialogs are very British, which could be an impediment for it to have appeal in the United States.

Jude Law is a gem in the film, his character is memorable and remarkable.

Another notable thing in this film is that, despite being a gangster film, it is not violent or gory. This is a big plus for non gore fans!
