Slow to start - definitely not. I was glued to the screen from the moment the film began.
This was a slick British crime drama that I've come to expect from the Brits. No one writes mystery and crime drama like they do.
And you could not have asked for better actors to play their respective roles; from Rufus Sewell, Gabriel Byrne, to Toby Stephens they all provided excellent performances.
The one thing I love about British crime drama is that many writers fail purposely or not to explain everything, they leave the audience to figure out various parts of the plot line, which I personally like and approve. And this movie had a lot of plot twists and unexpected results that will have your jaw dropping.
I recommend this movie to anyone who appreciates British crime drama.
