Xan Brooks, THE GUARDIAN, London
"Malcolm McDowell plays his villain with understated
Ray Bennett, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"The casting demonstrates Hodges' desire to ring changes
on the stock characters of gangster stories. Malcolm McDowell's playing against
Clive Owen provides a fruitful clash of acting styles."
Stephen Chibnall, SIGHT AND SOUND
"Hodges' elegant direction is underscored by the bluish,

Ken Stott, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Charlotte Rampling) providing a fine
counterpoint to Clive Owen's understated hard man."
