On the verge of being great
9 July 2017 | by jeneve-06408See all my reviews

This was a really entertaining movie with good acting all round, If i have any gripes it's because it could have been a terrific film if it had dug a bit deeper as in Lenny's enforcing days and some of the gangsters he mixed with, I thought the weird scene with him singing wild thing could have been put to better use but British directors like to do this kind of thing for some unknown reason and it kind of spoils things a bit.That said it's well worth watching and even Michael Bisping was good.
