"All Things to All Men" is a 2013 British crime film.
Gabriel Byrne plays London crime boss Joseph Corso. His son, Mark (Pierre Mascolo), is a drug runner, and Corso also has an associate.
On the case are Parker (Rufus Sewell), Dixon (Leo Gregory), and Sands (George Cutter) from New Scotland Yard/Metro Police.
By using Mark and getting him on drug charges, the cops are able to get Corso into trapping Riley (Toby Stephens) who moves stolen diamonds.
Corso insists on seeing his son and also wants him released; Parker wants Riley in prison.
Joseph goes to Riley with one more job, a robbery where they have to move quickly. Parker delivers Corso's son to him. Joseph tells his son that he is planning to retire, but Mark won't be succeeding him due to his record.
It all goes awry, along with this bare-bones film that moves fast and says not much. We have a big car chase, though.
It's hard to tell the good guys from the bad, and I guess that's the point, as they cops acted like criminals.
The acting was good, especially from Byrne, Sewell, and Stephens, but I was not involved in the plot or with any of the actors. Normally I can follow a complicated plot - in fact, I like them - but when they're not well written, they are hard to follow, as this one was. The main reason for that is lack of interest.
