    • The Making of London Boulevard

    Synopsis


    London Boulevard
    A South London gangster emerges from three years in prison and becomes a bodyguard for a famous actress, only to be sucked back into the shady underworld by a ruthless crime lord in this gritty crime drama starring Colin Farrell. Mitchel (Farrell) served his time in Pentonville Prison. Now that he's a free man, he's determined to keep it that way. His resolve not to fall back on his criminal past is weakened, however, when his longtime friend Billy (Ben Chaplin) offers him a place to stay in exchange for help with a quick and dirty job. But just as it seems like the past won't let Mitchel go, a promising new opportunity arises; high-profile actress Charlotte (Keira Knightley) is hiding out from the paparazzi in a Holland Park mansion, and she needs a man who can help keep them at bay. Little does Charlotte realize that Billy has set his sights on her classic cars and valuable art collection, and that Mitchel is the only thing preventing him from robbing her blind. But just as Mitchel and Charlotte fall in love and make plans to move to Los Angeles, notorious mob heavy Gant (Ray Winstone) presents the cunning ex-con with an offer he can't refuse: Gant wants Mitchel in his gang, and he won't take no for an answer. Before Mitchel can flee, Gant has got him under his thumb, revealing that Mitchel will die before he ever has a chance to take flight. Upon realizing that any refusal to follow Gant's orders will endanger not only himself, but his sister Briony (Anna Friel) and Charlotte as well, Mitchel prepares to strike back with a vengeance. Consequences be damned, Mitchel will do whatever it takes to protect the ones he loves, and prove that no man owns him. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      British crime film from the writer of The Departed

      In London Boulevard, Colin Farrell's ex-con character Mitchel is released from a three year stint in prison and eased back into an illegal side of life with help from his friend Billy (played by Ben Chaplin). While at a party celebrating his release, Mitchel has an altercation with an old "friend" that attracts the attention of Penny (played by Ophelia Lovibond), who is friends with a reclusive actress named Charlotte (played by Keira Knightley) needing protection from an endless swarm of prying paparazzi. As Mitchel and Charlotte become romantically involved, his old life refuses to loosen its grip and slowly starts to tighten the noose, threatening to destroy everything he has. Absolutely love this stylish film. If you enjoy the old British crime flicks from the 60s/70s, you'll love London Boulevard. Violent, visceral, and full of wit.

      Bold simple London crime drama

      Written and directed by the screenwriter of 'The Departed', fans of the latter film could give this one a see. Farrell and Knightley play well on rommance, Ray Winstone as the bad guy is good; Cut and dry British crime drama with great sets & locale, no memorable moments, near predictable in select parts as a crime drama. Fans of any listed actor may enjoy, but the movie could pass for an old TV plot.

      Thought I was going to be able to add this to my list of really enjoyable British crime/caper movies but it wasn't meant to be. Colin and Keira deliver decent performances and Ray Winstone mails in his (no spoiler alert) performance as a hard edged British crime boss. The pace ebbs and flows making it drag at times.

      i am a very big fan of Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell, that was why I purchased this movie (it was also very cheap) and while I did not expect much, it met my expectations. It is a gritty thriller that while was watchable, was not something I might watch over and over.

      Predictable and lack of character development

      I didn't care much about the characters and the ending was predictable, seen many times before.
