This film is very gritty and downbeat. It's a lot like a lot of the films of the 1970's in that regard. Don't get me wrong, it's a well acted, well directed, well paced film but it's a huge downer. I recommend it highly. All the actors are superb and the soundtrack is spot on. Be aware however, some of the accents are near impenetrable to the untrained ear, but I could piece together what they were saying by how other actors responded.
And Andrew Garfield is the luckiest bastard in movie history. He got to do a sex scene with Michelle Dockery and with the lovely Rebecca Hall.
I found it to be formulaic, predictable, and on the dull side. I guess that's why I fell asleep when it was on.
If you dig movies about chicks kicking ass, then you might like this one, otherwise, skip it. You won't be missing much.
