Trivia

Early in the film, the bartender in the pub says "there would be no Burke without the little Hare here." This refers to William Burke and William Hare, the famous body snatchers that operated in Edinburgh, Scotland in the early 1800s. Much of the plot for the movie is inspired by their story.

Blake and Grimes
30 December 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The story has been told in other movies too. But the way it is handled here (with the humor) seems far superior to other movies (even a recent one, made by Landis). The story is more or less told in a reverse way, which makes you wonder a few things (or maybe you will guess where it is heading quite early on).

The acting is really great and even the small role by Mr. Pearlman is just great. You couldn't imagine anyone else playing that role. He really is on par with Dominic M., who just is great in this one. There is life after "LotR" and "Lost" after all. And he is one of the guys who can say he made the most of it (not to mention his engagement with the wonderful Evangeline Lilly)!
