LON­DON BOULE­VARD ( MA)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Eguide Dvds -

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.
