The Liverpool Godfather This film was a lot better than I was expecting and I was gripped throughout. It is very violent and very dark at times (parts of it made me think of American Psycho). It easily earns an 18 rating with lots of sex, violence and bad language. A good story and some very funny bits involving a rather large lady (not for the easily offended).It largely resists all the recent gangster movie cliches … but still has a few… although not a Mockney in sight!It borrows plot lines from “The Godfather part 2” … sibling rivalry, a gangster wanting to go straight. Has a similar feel to “The Long Good Friday” in terms of realism, the violence is very real and the characters are genuine. I actually thought the acting was one of its strong points! … maybe some of the acting is a bit OTT but not much.
Liverpool Gangsters Very good film this, you can tell its not some big american budget movie, but keeps you captivated for 2 hours, i personally enjoyed it more than RocknRolla with a better twists to it, whilst you also get to see lots of Liverpool , overall good film well worth the money, saldy not one you can watch again and again. 5 out of 5 , good job guys like to see more from this lot
This film has it all! This film definitely lives up to the rave reviews it has had from the likes of Loaded. This is one of the best gangster movies I have seen and I agree with the previous review that it is much better than Rocknrolla. It has pretty much everything to keep you riveted throughout(though some scenes make you look away!).
