Gal, Deedee, Aitch and Jackie, having left behind respective lives of ill-repute, bask in the sun of Spain and in the most essential brand of leisure. A hazy yarn of barbecues, beer and botched hunting expeditions make up their retirements, until a sudden and unforeseen disruption emerges from their past. Enter the childishly violent and hilariously edgy Don Logan. Through a series of side-splitting negotiations and irrevocable acts, retired crook Gal is forced to shake off the rust and accept one last mission, put forth by the menacing Logan, his ex-mentor. A heist of legendary proportion and personal implications, this job should make for one hell of an encore.Written by

When the rock rolls down the hill and almost hits Gal, we see it passing at his right side. But when the rock falls in the pool, it's clearly at his left side. See more »

Oh, yeah. Bloody hell. I'm sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It's like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach. Ohh, who wouldn't lap this up? It's ridiculous. Tremendous. Fantastic. Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic.

On the surface it's an artful depiction of British gangsters, but the real story is of a man absolutely driven by an obsession with a woman that he's too socially maladjusted to pursue normally. On the surface he's a strong, hyper-masculine man who is pushy, demanding, intimidating and fearless. Beneath the surface he's lonely, isolated, fragile and desperately craves acceptance, especially from the woman he's obsessed with, and he's frustrated and confused by his inability to achieve that acceptance. The casting is perfect. The acting is outstanding. As an American though, I practically needed a translator to understand what they were saying with their thick British accents. I loved the movie. The only flaw I saw was in the death scene. It wasn't believable. The man didn't seem to be experiencing the kind of pain and blood loss weakness an injury like that would've caused. But believe me, it's a minor flaw. It's a beautiful movie.
