Did You Know?


The character played by Bill Nighy holds guns with just a thumb and middle finger, with his index on the trigger. This unusual grip is because he suffers from Dupuytren's contracture, which means he can't straighten the ring and little fingers on each hand. See more »


(at around 1 min) During the car chase scene, Rose starts out driving and then during the chase she switches seats with Victor. The camera moves to the car chasing them and then cuts back to Tony sitting in the back. From behind you can clearly see Rose still driving. See more »


Victor Maynard: Tony, come and see what happens if you don't clean your gun.

Brilliantly Funny
20 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, in contrast to the first review, i felt that this was a hilariously funny attribute to the British film industry. With continuous amusing modern slap stick humour throughout.

I had been looking forward to the release of this film for a while, and it was far better than i had ever expected. The cinema was packed and everyone was laughing throughout the entire film, which in my experience is very rare.

There is an incredible cast containing many well known British actors/ actresses, overall a must see film.

Looking forward to the DVD release. Thank you. x
