A Brooklyn crime drama, with an undercurrent of violence. Of course, the main set is a bar the mob uses as a money drop, which doesn't bode well for a peaceful scenario. There is a history to the characters, which unfolds in a manner that draws you in waiting for the plot twists. Really wonderful understated performances by the 3 lead characters. Two thumbs up!!

This drama/crime film is about a man who works at a pub where gang members regularly conduct business as he turns a blind eye. But after rescuing a neglected puppy and meeting a new woman, he begins to question what he has been doing with his life and the moral issues that he has been ignoring. The movie stars Tom Hardy in one of his most convincing and heartfelt performances to date, as he brings out the true essence of his character in a way that is believable and not melodramatic. I would rate this film 4.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who like soul searching crime films. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Dark, depressing, tense, and ultimately excellent. Tom Hardy and James Gandolfini are excellent.

Brilliant and hard-nosed just as I like 'em. Hardy delivers again along with several others. Anyone having problems with library DVDs try rubbing alcohol as a cleaning agent. Works 90% of the time. So many library discs have been stained with lord knows what !

I picked this up of the shelf because it had Tom hardy in it. I was pleasantly surprised. Great crime drama with a good twist at the end. James Gandolfino and Noomi Rapace are a match for Hardy.

Good collection of quotes in IMDb as these:

Bob: [on looking after his new puppy] I mean, it's a huge responsibility, right?
Cousin Marv: Well, it's a dog. It's not like some long lost retarded relative shows up at your door in a wheelchair and a colostomy bag hanging out of his ass. Says "I'm yours now. Take care of me." It's not that. It's a dog.

Bob: I shot him in the face, twice. Then I wrapped his head in a towel, and I stabbed him in the chest in his heart, so he would bleed out, and I put him in my bathtub and watched him drain. Then I put him in an oil tank with laundry detergent and lye, and I sealed it back up.
