  • A great cast and an intriguing premise are crowded out by a surplus of plot threads that don't have space to play out, and accordingly come across as clichés. Full Review

  • Guilty, with one or two mitigating circumstances. Full Review

  • It's a film with plenty of front, as they say, but uses up all its energy, wit and ideas in the first 20 or so minutes, before collapsing into a flurry of boring violence. Full Review

  • Hard-boiled crime yarn with Irish wit, colorful characters and considerable style. Full Review

  • In trying to take a bite out of crime and another out of fame, [Monahan has] ended up with more than he can chew for his first time in the director's chair. Full Review

  • London Boulevard is like a fancy, retro-styled pocket watch that someone accidentally broke and tried to reassemble with only a vague idea of clockwork. Full Review
