LONDON BOULEVARD ( MA)
A bunch of sub plots and a host of off- centre characters give this crime drama plenty of quirk to work with but unfortunately it ends up being too rich to be rewarding. Colin Farrell stars as an ex- con who takes a job looking after a reclusive movie star only to fall back into his own gangster world when a ruthless crime boss tries to blackmail him back into the life. The Departed writer William Monahan brings a good deal of style to proceedings but ultimately he doesn’t bring all the elements together as well as he could have.
Extras: ★ ★½ Q& A with the main actors.
